Hurricane Ian causes some beach parking to be suspended

As of 1:45 p.m., a decision was made to temporarily suspend beach driving due to high tides related to Hurricane Ian. This applies to county beaches located within the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island (Peters Point south to the State Park). We have also confirmed with the City of Fernandina Beach that beach parking at Seaside Park is now prohibited as well. At this time, we have no information related to beaches within the State Park on the south end of Amelia Island.

We will continue to monitor the situation; however it is likely that beach driving will remain suspended until after the storm passes. We will be sure to make announcements when the beach driving suspension is lifted.

Please continue to remain vigilant and follow public safety announcements. They can be heard on NOAA Weather Radio; local radio stations 89.9 FM, 104.5 FM and 690 AM; and local news stations Channels 4, 12, 30 and 47.
