Maryland Emergency Management Agency’s New Hurricane and Severe Weather Evacuation System


Know Your Zone

What Is It?

Know Your Zone is a new color-coded interactive map you can use to determine which storm evacuation zone you live in based upon your street address.

How Will It Help You?

Knowing your zone will help you avoid unnecessary evacuation travel, thereby reducing highway congestion, easing overcrowding at local storm shelters and boosting public safety.

How Do You Use It?

Simply enter your address and view a color-coded map showing the evacuation zone. Emergency managers will work with local media and use social media and other tools to notify residents of impacted zones what they should do to stay safe.
