Updated evacuation zones now consider a hurricane's most deadly component: storm surge.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- New maps have been issued by NOAA on how evacuations should be handled around the country.
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.
Now, new zones have been drawn up which include the hurricane's most deadly factor: storm surge.

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.
