Hillsborough County to Open Additional Shelters Saturday Morning

On Saturday morning at 8 a.m., Hillsborough County will open additional shelters for residents in Evacuation Zone A whose homes are vulnerable to storm surge and flooding, and for manufactured homes that are susceptible to wind damage. Here is a list of the shelters that are opening.

Two shelters are currently open to accommodate special-needs residents only at:

  •          Strawberry Crest High School, 4691 Gallagher Road in Dover
  •         SunDome at USF, 4202 E. Fowler Ave. in Tampa

The special-needs shelters are only for residents with medical issues that require electricity assistance or cognitive issues that would not be supported in a general population shelter.

Residents can confirm evacuation zones and register for HCFL Alert, Hillsborough County's official public notification system, at or by calling (813) 272-5900.
