Evacuation Ordered for Bay County


Mandatory evacuations in Bay County go into effect at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning for zones A, B, and C. 
Emergency operations officials are asking residents who can to evacuate Monday. 

“For those considering evacuation, I can’t stress strongly enough the importance of leaving as early as possible,” Sheriff Tommy Ford said. “Those that can leave today should do so. Evacuation routes can quickly turn into traffic nightmares. Please evacuate now.”

A shelter will open at Deane Bozeman at 10 am Tuesday.
