Hurricane Irma: Monitor and prepare

Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in all 67 counties within the State of Florida in response to Hurricane Irma. City officials are aware of the weather forecast and we are taking necessary precautions. Escambia County Emergency Management is closely monitoring Hurricane Irma. Residents are urged to do the same by monitoring our local media for the most up-to-date forecasts daily. 

According to the National Hurricane Center, there is an increasing chance that the Florida Peninsula and Florida Keys will see some impacts later this week and weekend. However, it is still too early to determine what direct impacts Irma might have on Escambia County and Northwest Florida as there is no reliable way to forecast potential impacts to an area that is more than about five days away from a specific location.


In preparation of potential impacts residents can review the City of Pensacola hurricane preparedness website (link below) for tips, checklists, plans, and more to ensure you and your family are prepared.
