Hurricane Season is here! Do you know when to get off the Island or where to go if a hurricane approaches Fort Myers Beach?
June marks the beginning of hurricane season and Fort Myers Beach is a barrier island, when a hurricane approaches a mandatory evacuation notice will usually be issued. Once the winds get above 45 miles per hour no emergency services can be expected until the storm has passed.Fort Myers Beach Town Hall has re-entry passes for residents and business owners but they must register to receive them. Lee County has five evacuation zones, Fort Myers Beach lies in Zone A with a clearance time of more than 10 hours. Once the county orders mandatory evacuations for Zone A,beach residents need to take all supplies with them and have a planned destination within a safe distance from home.Lee County has more than 20 public shelter locations including Germain Arena and local schools, that can be opened as needed to iPhone and Android devices, called LeeEvac.
