Make a Plan

  • Know if you need to evacuate. Do you live in a storm surge area? If so, you will evacuate based on your zip code and the storm’s impact. Please adhere to the evacuation zones and evacuate when told to do so. The zones are listed in sequential order, so that citizens nearest the coast can evacuate first, and we can all avoid a gridlock.
  • Know in advance where you will go. Where will you stay, and how will you get there? The time to prepare is now, not when you are evacuating. Make sure your destination has the appropriate accommodations, if you have specialized needs.

Stay Informed

  • When an emergency is imminent, stay tuned to local news/weather stations for the latest information.
  • Most government agencies and Offices of Emergency Management offer emails and text alerts to citizens.
