County Hurricane Guides, Evacuation Maps & Shelter Lists
These are the official hurricane guides and evacuation zone maps for the counties in the Tampa Bay Region. A hurricane evacuation will be ordered by Level (A, B, C, D or E) as shown on these color-coded maps. The maps also show the location of evacuation routes and public shelters.
The evacuation plans in the Tampa Bay region call for one of five evacuation levels. These are called Evacuation Levels A, B, C, D, or E. Each level requires the evacuation of successively more zones inland. All structures will be affected by the hurricane-force winds. However, mobile homes residents are extremely vulnerable.
If you need assistance in locating your zone, evacuation route, or evacuation shelter, please contact your county's Emergency Management office.
