Updated evacuation zones now consider a hurricane's most deadly component: storm surge.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The 2015 Atlantic Hurricane season kicks off June 1, so now's a good time to figure out where you need to go in case one bears down on the First Coast.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued new maps last year for your evacuation zones.
The new zones take into consideration far more than just the category of a storm, which is solely based on the system's wind speed. They also include the hurricane's most deadly factor: storm surge.
Click on your county listed below to see specific hurricane evacuation planning for your area. Some counties will allow you to enter your address to see your zone as well.
Zones on the maps are color coded and alphabetized. If your address is in a white area, or not in a specific evacuation zone, that does not mean you will not have to evacuate. This just means you'll be asked to evacuate if a county wide order is given.
