Hurricane/Storm Preparedness

Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. In the event of a hurricane threat and formal order for evacuation, Treasure Island must be completely evacuated due to the city’s low elevation and a very strong possibility of a storm surge and flooding. Flooding and storm surge will not just prevent you from leaving - it will also prevent emergency responders from assisting you if you were to ignore the order and remain on the island. Moreover, Treasure Island City employees, emergency personnel, and volunteers, along with all their equipment, are also evacuated off the island in order to make the first return to restore city operations and services, once the evacuation is over.
