MONTGOMERY – Governor Robert Bentley on Monday amended evacuation orders covering portions of Baldwin and Mobile Counties based on updated forecast models for Tropical Storm Isaac.
In Baldwin County, the Zone 1 evacuation order remains mandatory. The mandatory evacuation order for Zone 2 is now modified to include only low-lying, flood-prone areas or mobile/manufactured houses determined by local officials to be vulnerable to Isaac.
In Mobile County, the mandatory evacuation order for Zone 1 remains in effect for Dauphin Island and in other low-lying, flood-prone areas or mobile/manufactured houses determined by local officials to be vulnerable to Isaac.
The mandatory evacuation order for Zone 2 in Mobile County is now modified to include only low-lying, flood-prone areas or mobile/manufactured houses determined by local officials to be vulnerable to Isaac.
“It is important that we give local authorities flexibility to oversee evacuations as the forecast for Isaac continues to be updated,” Governor Bentley said. “Our number-one priority is protecting lives. I am giving local officials in Mobile and Baldwin Counties more flexibility to enforce evacuations in order to help make sure people are safe.”
