Leon County on Guard

The Division of Emergency Management warns the biggest threat to the Big Bend area could be flooding and high winds, forcing Leon County residents in low-lying areas to seek higher ground, which could change the need for host shelters in the area to risk shelters.

Leon County's Division of Emergency Management is working on a small-scale basis right now, but could move to full activation over the weekend.

Officials are seeking volunteers to help answer phones and assist citizens affected by Frances.
