The following counties DO NOT have designated evacuation zones. These counties may still issue evacuation orders, but these orders will NOT refer to designated evacuation zones.
Evacuation orders are often issued for "mobile homes and low-lying areas". There are no maps to designate these areas. However, there are designated Flood Zones.

Evacuation orders are not generally made using flood zone designations. However, those in flood zones should consider themselves in "low-lying areas" and susceptible to flooding from storm surge in coastal areas and heavy rain as well.
Evacuation Zones are designated by letter. Vulnerability may be assumed to increase as the designations go from Tropical Storm Zone to Zone F, with Tropical Storm Zone and Zone A as the most vulnerable. No other counties in the state have an F zone except the NEFL counties, for now. Counties who use designated evacuation zones will use these letters when they order evacuations.
