Manatee County Evacuation Levels and Route Maps
(Note that Manatee County has contract towing services assigned by the local law enforcement agencies and placed on stand-by. If your vehicle becomes disabled during evacuation, try to move it off the evacuation roadway and place a white cloth flag to signal vehicle distress. The towing service will assist you in moving your vehicle off the evacuation roadway and in finding transportation to the nearest possible shelter. They may not be able to transport you or your vehicle to a location of your preference.)
