Description: Storm Surge Planning Zones

The description of Storm Surge Planning Zones is as follows:

  • Zone A is at greatest risk for storm surge for Category 1 and higher storms.
  • Zone B is at greatest risk for storm surge for Category 2 and higher storms.
  • Zone C is at greatest risk for storm surge for Category 3 and higher storms.
  • Zone D is at greatest risk for storm surge for Category 4 and higher storms.
  • Zone E is at greatest risk for storm surge from Category 5 storms.

The Storm Surge Planning Zones are used to identify risk of storm surge and is based on all directions of storms. As a storm is approaching, Miami-Dade County Emergency Management will identify which areas should evacuate for that particular storm. Evacuation Zones will be all of or a portion of the Storm Surge Planning Zones. Residents should monitor the media and listen for which areas are being told to evacuate.
