Evacuation zones are broken down into zones A to E. Zone A is likely to be evacuated first whereas Zone E is likely to be evacuated last. 

Be sure to keep up-to-date with any news conferences that the mayor or governor will have as a hurricane approaches. During these updates, the mayor or governor will tell which zone should evacuate.

You should also know where shelters are in case you need to leave your home. These won't be announced until areas will have to evacuate, so be sure to keep checking firstcoastnews.com and the First Coast News app for updates.
