The storm evacuation process can be confusing, and due to the size of the Tampa Bay area, the Florida Department of Transportation encourages citizens to take personal education into their own hands. It's simple to stay on top of your community's storm prep - simply use the following link to locate your county's emergency management website and add it to your "favorites". If a storm is approaching, begin checking in to see what your community is doing to prepare and to get the most up-to-date information as to whether you will be subject to evacuation.
