The City of Largo Asks Residents to Prep for Hurricane Season

The 2021 hurricane season starts June 1 and the City of Largo with Pinellas County Emergency Management ask residents to remember three things to survive a disaster. Residents should know their risk, make a plan and stay informed.

Know your risk
Understanding your risk for flooding, storm surge and wind damage is an important first step. It is important to check both your evacuation zone and your flood zone. You can live in an area that is in a non-evacuation zone based on storm surge, but be in a flood zone, which may be a high, moderate or low flood risk.

Make a plan
By pledging to update or create a disaster plan, residents can make the commitment to help our community prepare for disasters. Residents can find examples of disaster plans and pledge to complete theirs here. To help you plan, the Pinellas County 2021 Hurricane Guide is now available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
