Florida Emergency Information Line Activated In Response To Tropical Depression Debby
Make Safety Your First Priority During Tropical Storm Debby

As Tropical Storm Debby continues to move across Florida, residents and visitors should be aware of safe practices and continue to heed instructions from local officials. As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Tropical Storm Debby was located 85 miles west of Cedar Key, Florida and moving east at three mph.

“With nearly a foot of rain in some portions of the state, flooding is the primary concern from Tropical Storm Debby,” said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon. “The State Emergency Response Team is working to support impacted counties and educate the public on steps to stay safe during severe weather.”

Flooding and storm surge is a major threat during tropical storms and hurricanes. The excessive rain from Tropical Storm Debby has caused flooding in many Florida counties, along with widespread power outages. The tips below can help you and your family or business stay safe during and after Tropical Storm Debby.

Turn Around, Don’t Drown. If you see a flooded roadway, turn around and take another route. Take your time when travelling.  Avoid Standing Water. Avoid contact with flood waters, especially if you have open cuts.

Wash Your Hands. Stay as clean as possible by washing your hands with soap and water that has been boiled or disinfected.

Don’t Wait to Evacuate. Follow instructions from local officials by staying tuned to local media for evacuation or sheltering and take action immediately.

Use flashlights, not candles. Ensure your family has enough flashlights and batteries in the case of a power outage. Candles create a fire hazard and should be avoided.

Avoid Downed Power Lines. If you see a downed power line, assume it is live and contact the utility. Do not try to handle it yourself.

Follow Beach Warning Flags. If you go to the beach, pay attention to the warning flags and do not swim if beaches are closed. Tropical storms, including Debby, increase the risk of dangerous rip currents.
