Hurricane Matthew: Many in Juno Beach ignoring evacuation order


Juno Beach has issued a mandatory evacuation order.

About half of the 3,400 permanent residents of the oceanfront town are expected to stay, said Town Manager Joe Lo Bello.

“I hope they are not making a mistake,” Lo Bello said.

Here’s latest weather report from Kim Miller.

Town officials and police are going to the condominiums – the tallest is 12 stories – and to mobile home parks to inform residents about the evacuation order.

Town officials cannot force residents to leave.
