Daytona Beach International Airport to close

The airport terminal building and airfield will close at 12:35 p.m. today. All future flights are canceled until further notice. Flyers are encouraged to contact their airline for scheduling updates.

Rising waters

Emergency Management officials advise residents of Lake Harney Woods, Stone Island, Astor and surrounding areas to pay close attention to weather updates and be prepared to take action before extreme conditions occur. These areas normally flood during periods of excessive rainfall. Residents may want to find accommodations with family or friends, in a hotel, or in a public shelter as a last resort.

Volusia County is expecting at 12 to 18 inches of rain with a potential for 24 inches in pockets beginning today. Residents are advised that rising waters may hinder emergency response.

Astor is already at minor flood stage and is expected to reach moderate flood stage today or tomorrow.
