Know Your Evacuation Zone This Hurricane Season
The closest hurricane experience Sarasotans can have is one of those hurricane booths in the mall that blows 78 mph winds, but just because a real one hasn't struck the city in years doesn't mean you should be any less prepared this hurricane season.

Your route will take you straight to Publix and Home Depot.
They're the ones that profit off of these 'hurricane preparation' alerts.
But if you want to how to evacuate, pick up a hurricane prep guide at Publix, they usually have them on the same rack as their weekly ads.
Use common sense, get a few days of canned foods, a manually operated can opener, batteries, battery operated radio, a gas grill and stock up on not only drinking water but washing water, you'll need it. Fill your bath tub with water after you clean it. Stock you freezer with as much ice as it'll hold and don't open it much.
Gas up your car and get some cash cause if the power is out for awhile, the ATM isn't gonna work.
If your close to water, leave and then come back.
And don't forget supplies for your pet and medications for you if you take them.

Youtube Katrina New Orleans evacuation and you will see how well our idiots on gov payroll map this shit out. Your evacuation is a mattress in the deepest recesses of your home.
Look at that shit at every intersection. Like high winds will not bring down those massive columns while one is trying to traverse into chaos?
Good guidance to hunker down with some non perishables, flashlights, etc.
And welcome to Ssta.
