PASCO COUNTY, FL. – Pasco County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is returning to a modified Level Two Activation status and resuming regular operating hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.; however, Pasco County Government team members will continue to monitor conditions and respond, as necessary, to any issues that might arise following Hurricane Elsa.
Low-lying, coastal areas and roads could still experience localized flooding due to storm surge in Elsa’s wake, so please use caution around floodwaters.
