Pasco County has issued a mandatory evacuation for residents living in Evacuation Zone A, as well as those living in manufactured homes, mobile homes and RVs.
Mandatory evacuations also apply to those living in low-lying and flood prone areas or structures that have previously flooded during heavy rains.
The mandatory evacuations will go into effect around 3 p.m., Pasco County spokesperson Jeremy Sidlauskas said.
Residents should also evacuate if they live in Zones B and C, are registered as a Special Needs Resident or would be vulnerable in the instance of a power outage. However, these evacuations are currently voluntary.
Evacuation zones can be found here.
Pasco shelters will open at 8 a.m. Tuesday. The county will release a list of shelters Monday.
