The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office handled more than 2,600 calls between noon Friday, May 22 and midnight May 25th, according to OCSO.


Nine people were rescued from the East Pass on Friday, according to OCSO.


About 3 p.m., marine units with the Sheriff’s Office were called out to reports of a flipped boat, a post on the OCSO Facebook page said.


A video from the OCSO shows boaters in apparent distress near pipes related to the current dredging operations in the area.


Responders with OCSO, U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife and Destin Beach Safety helped in the rescues, the post said.


“Initial reports indicate there were some minor injuries, but all passengers were recovered safely,” said the post.


OCSO released a sample of some of the types of calls that flooded the Communications Unit as large crowds packed area beaches, roads, and waters for Memorial Day weekend.
