Currently, the Walton County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is at a Level 3. This means we are monitoring the situation and staying abreast of the weather conditions.
Twice a day, meetings are held via webinar with State EOC officials. The current weather situation is discussed, and members throughout the state of Florida discuss actions that each county is taking in preparation of the storm.
The Walton County EOC will continue to stay at Level 3 and will be on standby this weekend watching the forecast models. As conditions change, the press and public will be notified of Level status changes.
The WCSO has opened up a Tropical Storm Isaac Citizen Information Hotline. Citizens may call in with their questions about the storm to these numbers: 850-892-8392 and 850-892-8394. No shelters have been opened at this time.
The public is encouraged to be prepared, no matter what. Food, water, and batteries are good to have in stock in any situation, as this is Florida and weather can change in the blink of an eye.
Citizens and visitors to Walton County can keep up with the latest information by visiting www.waltonso.org, the WCSO Facebook page, as well as Walton Alert (the EM Facebook page), and the WCSO Twitter page. They can also stay tuned to local television, radio, and newspaper outlets.
