PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. (WPTV) — Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw gave an update to WPTV this morning about conditions during Hurricane Dorian.

Bradshaw said conditions are pretty much like they were, but traffic is not bad.

"People are pretty much doing what we asked them to do," Bradshaw said.

He also said there were a few arrests overnight.

"We told them we're going to be out there looking," he said.

Additionally, Bradshaw said that deputies will incrementally de-ramp their presence after the storm.

"All the assets will not come off the road at one time" he said. "We know businesses have to reopen, people have to come back to their houses. We'll be able to take care of all of the traffic and people wanting to go home."

Bradshaw warned that although Dorian is slow-moving, people should still err on the side of caution and should take each individual hurricane as it comes.

"People have been cooped up for a while," he said. "We're understanding about people trying to get out, move around."
