Walton Co. Emergency Operation’s Center prepares for Hurricane Sally

Local News

DeFuniak Springs (FL)— As Hurricane Sally tracks further to the east, Walton County Emergency Operation’s Center
Director Jeff Goldberg thinks the storm will have a greater impact on Northwest, Florida.

The EOC is now activated to level one with flooding expected along the coast and low lying areas along
the Shoal and Choctawhatchee rivers.

At this time, Goldberg says 15 to 20 inches of rainfall is expected through Thursday for Walton County.

And what’s worse, the storm surge is expected to be between two-to-three feet.

Walton County has now opened a shelter at Freeport High School on Highway 331.

Anyone who plans to use it should bring their disaster supply kits with them and be prepared to be self-sufficient.

In addition, a Walton County Citizen Information Center is being manned for any storm-related questions.

That number is 850-892-8392.

There are also four locations with bags and sand available.

You’re asked to bring a shovel.
