Jamaica Beach Mayor Victor Pearson confirms the city council adopted a plan that will allow a 'look and leave' policy until curfew is lifted. People can go in, check out their property, and then leave. He says the best way to go is probably by boat.

The program begins Saturday and runs 6am until 6pm.
