Motorists were seeing heavy traffic on local roadways Tuesday as evacuees and law enforcement, power and charity crews began to head south after Hurricane Irma.  

DeFuniak Springs Police urged local drivers to take alternate routes outside of Interstate 10 or drive slower than normal due to heavier traffic as hurricane evacuees return to their homes.

“Please drive safely – avoiding 90 and I-10 east bound if at all possible,” said Chief Mark Weeks.  “We wish them safe travels and hope they find their property unharmed.”
