On Monday, September 26, 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis issued updates on Hurricane Ian at the State Emergency Operations Center with Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie. 

To help Florida families safely and quickly evacuate in preparation of Hurricane Ian, tolls are now being suspended on many facilities in the projected areas of impact. Tolls in our immediate area of Okaloosa & Santa Rosa counties will be suspended as of 12:00pm on Monday for the following:

  • Spence Parkway in Okaloosa County
  • Mid-Bay Bridge in Okaloosa County
  • Garcon Point Bridge in Santa Rosa County

Hurricane Ian became a Category 1 hurricane this morning and is projected to continue strengthening into a major hurricane this week. Tropical-storm force winds may begin as soon as tonight in the Florida Keys and southern Florida.

“Regardless of Ian’s exact track and intensity, there is a significant risk of life-threatening storm surge, hurricane-force winds, and heavy rainfall along the west coast of Florida and the Florida Panhandle by the middle of this week,” said Gov. DeSantis in a press release.
