Weather Related Road Closures

September 5, 2018

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following road closures:

Escambia County

  • Bridge on U.S. 90 over 8 Mile Creek is closed due to flooding.
  • All ramps at the U.S. 29/ Nine Mile Road overpass are now open.
Motorists are encouraged to monitor weather reports and road conditions and to be on the lookout for flooded roads. If the road ahead is flooded, turn around and find an alternate route.

TS Gordon: Local Escambia County Info

September 4, 2018

Here is the latest Escambia County information on Tropical Storm Gordon:

Essential Local Information

  • Residents are asked to stay off the roads on beginning Tuesday afternoon if possible, as wind gusts and flash flooding may cause serious road hazardous.
  • With Gordon’s wind field enlarged, the potential for bridge closures has increased. It is highly recommended that if bridges are part of your travel, that you make your way to your evening destination by 4 p.m., Tuesday.
  • Board of County Commissioner offices will closed at 2 p.m. except for essential personal and those with bridge crossings in their commute.
  • No evacuations are being called for at this time.
  • No shelters are currently being opened, however the American Red Cross is on standby if the need arises.
  • Red flags are currently flying on Pensacola Beach. In Escambia County, except for surfers with a leash, it is illegal to enter the Gulf of Mexico when red flags are flying. Dangerous rip currents can also be present in yellow flag conditions. Learn moreĀ here.

Storm Information From NWS

  • Most likely arrival of tropical storm force winds will be this afternoon along the coast and this evening/tonight inland.
  • Expect bands of rain and winds starting in the afternoon and diminishing by early Wednesday morning.
  • A storm surge watch continues, with 1-3 feet of inundation. The greatest risk of storm surge will be this evening into early Wednesday morning and the water levels will be slow to recede due to onshore winds.
  • Rainfall amounts of 3-5 inches, with localized higher amounts up to 6-10 inches possible
  • Expect multiple rounds of heavy rain, creating flash flood conditions. Our area is under a flash flood watch.
  • Brief tornadoes are possible in the rain bands.
  • Dangerous surf conditions continue.

Sand Bags

Escambia County is offering sand for sand bags for residents living in flood-prone areas. The sand will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Residents must bring their own sandbags and shovels to one of the following locations (map):

Sand bags can be purchased at most local hardware or home improvement stores, typically for a low cost.
