FLAGLER COUNTY GOVERNMENT - Hurricane Dorian shifted further east Saturday improving - at least temporarily - the outlook for Flagler County. Evacuation plans are postponed until Monday.

"The picture is looking better, but we don't want people to let down their guard," said Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. "We are continuing to prepare as though we are going to need to call for evacuations at some point but we don't know exactly what that window is."

Flagler County will announce evacuations and shelter information with enough advance notice for residents to transition from their homes and into shelters.

When evacuation orders are issued, Bunnell Elementary will be the General Population and Pets Shelter, and Rymfire Elementary is designated for people with special needs.
