Governor Scott has also extended the state of emergency to 51 counties which does include us here in the Bay area. This is a good time to know your evacuation route per the Governor’s press conference earlier. And this list of emergency contacts is one you’ll want to keep handy.
Traffic is going to be a challenge. The Sunshine Sky has been shut down due to high winds, and Bayshore Blvd in Tampa is closed as well between Bay to Bay and Platt St. That’s just the short list; for more check in with our partners from 10 News. But please don’t try to drive through those areas just to try and save a few minutes. Just keep “turn around don’t drown” front and center for now.
