HURRICANE WARNING PROCEDURES

Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.

Weather and hurricane reports/warnings:

Radio Stations
970 AM WFLA
100.7 FM WMTX

Manatee County Emergency Alert National Weather Service Radio
KEC-38 @ 162.450 Largo
KHB-32 @ 162.550 Tampa

The National Weather Service tracks hurricanes and warns people when a hurricane is moving toward shore.  They use two different terms to warn us:

A HURRICANE WATCH means a hurricane might hit our area.  If a HURRICANE WATCH is issued for the area, please keep listening to local radio or television stations for the latest weather information.

A HURRICANE WARNING is issued when a hurricane is expected to hit our town within 24 hours.

THIS WILL NECESSITATE EVACUATION:

When a HURRICANE WARNING is issued for our area, you and your neighbors may be asked to evacuate.  Local radio and television stations will tell you where to go and the best roads to take.

Any Evacuation Level, A through E, requires evacuation from Anna Maria Island to the Mainland.

Use State Route 64/Manatee Avenue to a Designated Shelter.  Emergency personnel will assist you.  Please listen to the local radio station.

Your family should leave immediately

Please leave right away!  Don’t wait, especially in areas very near the ocean (like Anna Maria Island), because roads can flood quickly and keep you from leaving.

Just before you leave, run wide waterproof tape from corner to corner in a large “X” on each window and glass doors to keep glass from shattering into very small pieces.

Close and lock windows and glass doors, lowering blinds and closing curtains in case the windows break.  If there’s time, you can nail boards over larger windows.  Fill bathtubs and other clean containers with water in case water lines are damaged by the storm.

Shut off any LP gas.
