Gulf Coast evacuation zones

If you live near the Gulf Coast, you should know your home's flood zone and evacuation zone.
As we've seen before, if conditions are right, anyone's home can flood in heavy rain.

A hurricane also brings the added danger of storm surge, as the storm pushes Gulf water ahead of it.

Your evacuation zone depends on your risk of storm surge, which falls into two categories: high or moderate.

Remember, if you plan on leaving when a tropical storm or hurricane approaches, local counties have designated several evacuation routes.
These two websites can help you figure out your flood zone risk and evacuation route.

You can find these links and a lot of other information you need on our website.
