Officials with Volusia County Government held a press conference on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, to inform residents of the ramped-up efforts of storm preparations in the County. No mandatory evacuation orders are in place yet, but residents who choose to evacuate their homes, or those in low-lying areas may begin to do so.  

Four Volusia County Schools are being utilized as Hurricane Shelters and will open at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. Two shelters are for those with special needs (for those on oxygen or other special medical needs):

  • Atlantic High School - 1250 Reed Canal Rd, Port Orange, FL 32129
  • Galaxy Middle School - 2400 Eustace Ave, Deltona, FL 32725


The other two shelters are for the general population:

  • Mainland High School (pet friendly) - 1255 W Intl Speedway Blvd. Daytona Beach. FL. 32114
  • DeLand High School - 800 N Hill Ave, DeLand, FL 32724


All four emergency shelters are pet-friendly shelters.

A curfew has been activated for all unincorporated and incorporated Volusia County, beginning at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, and ending at 7 a.m. on Thursday, September 29, 2022. The curfew will also be in effect from 8 p.m. Thursday, September 29, to 7 a.m. on Friday, September 30, 2022. Anyone who does not have proper County or emergency personnel identification and is out during the curfew can be subject to a $500 fine or up to 60 days in jail.

School closures for all Volusia County schools were announced yesterday for Wednesday and Thursday. Any updates on school closures for Friday, September 30, will be made within 24 hours.
