All residents of Longboat Key reside in a Level A Evacuation Zone.

  • If you are ordered to evacuate, secure your home and leave immediately.
  • Failure to obey an evacuation order is a violation of Florida law.

Remember: Mobile home residents may be ordered to evacuate earlier than the general population depending on anticipated weather conditions.

Decide NOW where you would go if ordered to evacuate; a friend or relative, a hotel, out of the region or, as a last resort, to a shelter. If you are going to leave the region or go to a hotel, you must leave early. Determine your route.

Keep home in good repair.

Make plans and purchase materials to protect your home before the storm (plywood, shutter, or protective window film; plastic sheeting, nails, etc.)

  • Purchase a battery-powered weather alert radio

Inventory your property (a video tape is excellent).

  • Store insurance and title papers in a safe place or send a copy to a relative out of the area.
  • Make sure your address number is clearly marked on your home.
