JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The winds are already whipping in RV City. As Hurricane Sandy spins off the coast, fans are taking precautions inland.
"We decided not to put up the 30-foot flag that we normally fly every year just because the high winds," said Georgia Fan Mike Hodges.
City officials are warning grills need to be closely monitored. And tents, chairs, flags and decorations all need to be secured.
"As I know right now no one has requested help but members of Jacksonville Fire and Rescue went through RV City this morning and are already talking to the patrons out there," said Michael Jacobsen, Director of Emergency Preparedness for the city.
JSO will also be on hand providing any assistance.
"Common sense will prevail in this event because if you're trying to set up a tent and you're noticing you're having a hard time setting it up most likely those individuals will abandon that and put it away," said JSO Director of Patrol and Enforcement Michael Edwards.
JSO and JFRD are keeping a close eye on wind speeds. They do have a contingency plan in place if they're forced to close the bridges into downtown.
They're also closely monitoring the river and may have to halt river ferry travel if it gets too rough. But at this point everything is good to go.
