[ARCHIVED] City Monitoring Hurricane Dorian, Encouraging Citizens to Prepare

Thursday, August 29th, 10:30 a.m. - Hurricane Dorian Update

The City of Panama City continues to monitor Hurricane Dorian and encourages citizens to review their emergency preparedness plans and ensure supply kits are fully stocked. Please pay attention to your local news for the latest forecast on the storm.

City Manager Mark McQueen has asked our Public Works Team to take proactive measures to reduce the risk of flooding from potential rainfall. These measures include lowering storm water ponds to create more storage space in the storm water system and ensuring generators and by-pass pumps are operational should we need them to maintain utility infrastructure systems. Additionally, the team is deploying signs where there is potential for roadway flooding to help alert citizens.

If you have a concern about infrastructure such as ditches and storm drains, please call our Public Works Team at (850) 872-3015.

City Hall will be closed on Monday, September 2nd in observance of Labor Day, but we will continue to monitor the storm and provide updates. City crews will be working as needed this weekend and on Monday. Garbage service will run as scheduled on Monday. If you have an immediate water, sewer or flooding concern on Monday or after business hours, please call (850) 872-3112.

Citizens are also encouraged to visit for information on preparedness plans and sign-up to receive emergency notifications from Bay County at
