The NOAA National Hurricane Center has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Volusia County. This means a tropical storm with winds of 39 to 73 mph poses a possible threat within 48 hours. The watch does not mean tropical storm conditions will occur; it only means these conditions are possible.
Conditions will begin to deteriorate Tuesday afternoon, and there is a potential for beach erosion in Volusia County.
Gov. Ron DeSantis has amended his emergency declaration to include Volusia County.
Volusia County Chair Jeff Brower has issued a declaration of local emergency.
