Tropical storm Irma may have departed, but a law enforcement-imposed curfew is still in place for Leon County residents. 

County officials are asking residents to stay off the roads after 9:00 PM Monday and Tuesday night.  The curfew extends to 7:00 AM the following morning. 

Irma’s impact on Leon County was mercifully limited in comparison to early projections, but more than 40,000 customers lost power.  Until crews make more progress with clearing roads and other restoration, law enforcement is advising the cut off remain in place. 

County officials say they’re reassessing the curfew on a daily basis.
