TAMPA, Fla. - Karen Davis moved from Chicago last year and she's already on edge over the early start of this year's hurricane season.
"What did I get myself into?" Davis joked, never expecting two named storms before June 1st.
Living in South Tampa, she already has a hurricane kit ready to go. But when it comes to leaving, she was unsure of which evacuation zone she lives in.
"I'm going to guess we're the highest level? Are we?" Davis asked.
She wasn't the only South Tampa resident who didn't know which evacuation zone she belonged to. "Actually I don't know," said life-long Tampa resident Jamie Butterly. "We are on the water but I'm not too concerned."
We showed Butterly a copy of the Hillsborough County evacuation guide and she was shocked to see she was in the orange Zone B.
"Oh, my God! Really? Well, thanks for informing me. I didn't know."
Across the Bay in Pinellas County, you can drive from the Gandy Bridge inland 3 and a half miles to Interstate-275 and still be in a Level B Evacuation Zone.
Those who were here in 1985 understand why. That's the year Hurricane Elena brought major flooding, storm surge, and beach erosion.
"I know there hasn't been one to hit here in a long time. It's
due to come," said Davis.
Despite history, many seem unsure if they'll evacuate, even if the order is given.
"On the last storm we were closer to the water and we stayed," says Butterly.
