Miami-Dade County officials have told coastal area residents they will be asked to evacuate as early as Wednesday afternoon.
It’s easy to find out if your home is in an evacuation zone by entering your ZIP Code on a Miami-Dade map. Residents who live near the shoreline and some inland areas — Zones A and B — may be ordered to leave.
The zones are organized from A to E, with zone A being the area most vulnerable to storm surges. If your zone is ordered to evacuate, here is a list of shelters in your area.
