Storm Evacuation Information

The City of Boca Raton has aligned with Palm Beach County's new evacuation maps; in certain areas, specifically the Barrier Island, the City of Boca Raton will be strongly urging residents to evacuate during hurricanes and strong storms because there is a high probability that many buildings will lose power, resulting in the loss of elevators, lighting, air conditioning, and water.

For more information regarding evacuations, please visit Palm Beach County's website.

In the event of a hurricane, residents are encouraged to stay tuned to the local media for information regarding evacuations, shelters, and storm information. During an emergency, residents can obtain further information by listening to the City of Boca Raton's radio station, AM 1650, or by watching the City's TV channel, Ch 20.
The City's Citizen Information Center (CIC) is activated during storm events and can be contacted at 561-982-4900 for storm related information.
