Palm Bay declares local state of emergency

On Thursday, September 7, 2017 the City of Palm Bay declared a local State of Emergency in response to the impending threat of Hurricane Irma.

A local State of Emergency is declared in advance of a potential disaster event and enables government entities to readily seek response or recovery assistance of the State.

In addition to declaring a State of Emergency, Mayor William Capote also made decision to close all city offices and cease non-essential city functions beginning on Friday.

Once Hurricane Irma has passed, City officials will assess the situation and decide on when a return to normal City operations can be expected.

Status updates will be made to local media via news releases and through official communications from City leadership.
