Osceola County officials have announced a county-wide curfew, beginning Tuesday at 11 p.m. The curfew will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday and will be activated each night until further notice.
“That means you are required to stay inside your home unless you’re one of the accepted folks that can be traveling. It is a second degree misdemeanor to violate curfew. You can be arrested,” Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson explained.
Osceola County has also chosen to implement a fine for those who violate the curfew.
“This is a serious storm with wind force up to 165 mph and gusts up to 200mph. Osceola County is in tropical storm warning and will probably stay in place throughout the storm,” an EOC official said Monday.
Hurricane Dorian continues to crawl west across the Atlantic at 1mph.
