Hernando County Emergency Management announces that the local state of emergency has been extended for seven days. This is the second extension since the original declaration was made on September 5, 2017.
This decision was made by the executive policy group, comprised of county government leaders, due to the ongoing flooding that is impacting the residents living near the Withlacoochee River and other low-lying areas of Hernando County.
This extension will also ensure that the Emergency Operations Center continues to have flexibility in operations and purchasing to meet the needs of the community.
Hernando County Government’s Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor and inform our community about storm impacts. Visit the following web and social media sites for more information.
