Attached below is a map of Escambia County detailing the damage caused by the flooding event of April 29 and 30, 2014.
A joint meeting was held on July 18 at the Pensacola Bay Center, of which all County Commissioners, Mayor Hayward and City Council members were in attendance. More than 100 citizens attended the meeting to hear a presentation by J. David Waggoner, FAIA, and discuss storm water issues. Public input was also given on the subject and presentations were also given by County Administrator Jack Brown and City Administrator Colleen Castille regarding efforts to improve drainage systems in our community.
The eastbound right lane on Interstate 10 (I-10), just west of the U.S. 29 Interchange (mile marker 7) will be closed to traffic from 10 p.m. on Sunday, July 20, to 6 a.m. Monday, July 21, as crews remove temporary barrier wall. Motorists are reminded to use caution and obey the posted speed limit, especially at night, when traveling through the work zone.
Hurricane season is underway and Escambia County wants to ensure your family is prepared in the event a disaster strikes. Develop a disaster plan, have supplies readily available and enough supplies, food and water for each member of your family and pets. Be prepared to stay in the shelter for several days. Alcohol and weapons are not permitted and pets are only allowed in pet shelters. Should you choose an alternate plan, it is recommended that arrangements be made with a friend or relative who lives in a well constructed home out of the evacuation area that is properly protected to withstand hurricane force winds.
