Palm Coast – On August 28, 2023 Mayor David Alfin signed a proclamation declaring a local state of emergency for the City of Palm Coast, as Tropical Storm Idalia poses a threat to Florida.

By issuing the proclamation for the local state of emergency, it allows the City to obtain resources on an emergency basis. It also allows for state and federal resources to quickly flow to the area.

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order EO-23-171 on Saturday, August 26, declaring a state of emergency for several Florida counties, and then amended that order on Monday to encompass additional counties, including Flagler.

At this time, the City of Palm Coast is monitoring and preparing for any possible impacts the storm may bring to the area. The City has activated the emergency mode on the website to provide vital information easily to residents.

The City of Palm Coast will staff its call center for residents beginning Tuesday at 7 a.m. Residents are highly encouraged to use Palm Coast Connect to submit a case before calling the phone number. If you need to call Customer Service, the number to call is 386-986-2360.
