ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- Access to and from Ormond Beach beach's beachside has been halted due to hurricane wind gusts that have forced the municipality to shut down the high-arching Granada Bridge in both connections, a city official said.

"The Granda Bridge has been shut down to traffic," Ormond Beach spokeswoman Jenn Elston informed Headline Surfer in an email media alert at 9:38 p.m., roughly 10 minutes ago. 

"The bridge will reopen when conditions have improved and it is deemed safe," Elston added.
