Although it’s passing to our northwest, parts of Pasco County will feel the effects of Hurricane Michael. Officials are asking those who live WEST of Highway 19 that could see a dangerous storm surge or have special needs to evacuate, according to Channel 8. It’s not a mandatory evacuation. But if you’re in a low-lying area and have had damage in the past from flooding, it’s something you want to consider.

There is a shelter open now in Hudson at 11611 Denton Avenue if you don’t have a friend or family member to stay with. If you need help or have questions, call (727) 847-2411.
