Storm, holiday news from the City of St. Augustine

In times of emergency, depend on information closest to home

     You have many choices for sources of information especially during an impending weather emergency such as we are experiencing now. 
     We believe that in times of emergency, it is best to first go to sources closest to our home because that information is likely to be the most helpful. 
     As part of your storm preparations, take a minute to bookmark the websites for the city and St. Johns County Emergency Management and connect to the city’s social media accounts. 
      Lastly, keep the phone numbers readily available for now and for after the storm so you can get your questions answered and concerns met quickly.
