Normalcy slowly returns as Hurricane Michael effects still felt

A state of normalcy is slowly returning to Citrus County, now that Hurricane Michael has passed.

Still to come are flooding effects from that storm remain, however.

While county officials deal with road closings and other water-related issues, other day-to-day activities are returning to regular schedules. And the first sign of that is that schools will be in session on Friday. The Citrus County School District has announced that schools will be opened as scheduled. The schools had been closed for a while because they were being used as storm shelters for county residents.

The Sheriff’s Office has also announced that the Tropical Storm Warning and Surge Warning have been canceled. “Citrus County was fortunately spared the devastating destruction and flooding of Hurricane Michael,” the Sheriff’s facebook page said on Thursday. “Citrus County is no longer in harm’s way. Our Citizens Information Lines are now closed.”
