With most of the hurricane-force winds kept at sea, Ormond Beach showed little damage after the Category 2 storm.
Hurricane Dorian churned the Atlantic Ocean waters as it swept by Florida's east coast late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning, its offshore trajectory keeping most of the hurricane-force winds out at sea.
By around 7:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, the Granada Bridge was reopened. Streets around town sported fallen palm fronds and strewn leaves. Fortunato Park on the beachside flooded, and the tide rolled in angrily at the various beach approaches while Dorian continued its northwest path to Georgia and the Carolinas. But otherwise, fire crews who surveyed Volusia found no major damage.
"To say we dodged a bullet from the storm is obviously an understatement," said Volusia County Manager George Recktenwald in a news briefing Wednesday afternoon. "We dodged a missile."
There are no widespread power outages, and by 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Florida Power and Light was working to restore power to 1,145 Volusia customers.
