Storm Surge Planning Zone Map

In 2013, Miami-Dade County revised all Storm Surge Planning (evacuation) Zones based on new modeling data. As a result, a greater portion of the County falls within planning zones. It is important for the entire University community to know if their home is within a planning zone, and if so, to plan accordingly. Determine if your home is in a storm surge planning zone by visiting, entering your address, and selecting the emergency management tab or call the Miami-Dade County Answer Center at 3-1-1.
