The National Hurricane Center has issued both a storm surge watch and a hurricane watch for the entire Tampa Bay area south of the Anclote River. Here’s what that means, and what resources Gulf beach, Pinellas, and Gulfport residents have available to them.
Pinellas Hurricane prep
Pinellas County has opened its Call Information Center, and the City of Gulfport announced it will open its Information Call Center on Sunday, Sept. 25. Both centers will field information about Tropical Storm Ian and local preparedness.
Tropical Storm Eta is still hanging out in the middle of the Gulf and she isn’t expected to move much any time soon, according to the NHC.
