Changes To Evacuation Maps May Affect YouThe 2010 hurricane season is drawing near, and recent developments from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida may affect you. New storm surge models have led local emergency planners to redraw and update local evacuation maps, affecting over 130,000 parcels of land in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties alone.

Perenich The Law Firm is made up of lawyers and attorneys who have called Pinellas county and the Tampa Bay area home for many years. Every year, we have learned to live under the threat of potential hurricane strikes and recently this area has been lucky. The last major hurricane to strike Tampa Bay was the aptly named “Tampa Bay Hurricane” of 1921. However, it cannot be stressed enough that we all must be prepared each and every year, for it takes only one storm to forever alter our community, and have potentially deadly consequences if we do not take the proper precautions.
