Beautiful Sunday morning!

Another beautiful Sunday in August here in Volusia County today! Did you know we have an app to check for traffic and beach ramp closures now? I just learned of this today. Wow! It’s available for download at Itunes or Google Play. Beachgoers can get real-time information by downloading the Beach Navigator app. Utilizing advanced geo-location targeting, the app provides information for the nearest beach access ramps, parking, lifeguard towers, restrooms, food concessions and more. It also displays beach conditions and streaming video from live beach cameras and pulls data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as well as Volusia County databases. Also, the county has partnered with City of NSB and started a public information campaign with radio station WSBB 1230 AM and 1490 AM. Both agencies will provide up-to-date traffic and beach conditions to the radio station during peak beach travel times on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day. Their goal is to alert beach goers of traffic tie-ups, beach ramp closures and beach conditions before their trip.
