EVACUATION MAP and EMERGENCY RALLY POINTS

Update 2/27/17

EVACUATION MAP RALLY POINTS – UPDATE

It has been brought to BIMID’s attention that as of now the following marinas on the island are no longer available as evacuation points:

  • New Life Marina – 1200 Taylor Road
  • Caliente Harbor Marina – 1550 Taylor Road
  • Frank’s Marina – 7050 Riverview Drive
  • Old Lundborg Landing – 6777 Riverview Drive
  • Piper Pointe Marina – 3667 Willow Road

It is very important to understand in the case of a breach of the levee, YOU WILL NEED TO GET TO THE TOP OF THE LEVEE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. If you can’t readily get to the levee top, go up to the second story of your house (or if yours is a single story home, the second story of a nearby neighbor’s house). IT WILL BE IMPERATIVE FOR YOU TO GET TO THE HIGHEST POINT THAT YOU CAN ABOVE THE FLOODPLAIN. IT IS ALSO CRITICAL THAT YOU DO NOT DRIVE ON THE LEVEE IN ITS SATURATED CONDITION FOLLOWING ALL THE STORMS.
