Tampa Bay Hurricane Preparedness
Anclote Fire is based out of sunny, west-central Florida, in a town inside the Tampa Bay area. Typically, Tampa Bay has not been a common direct hit for massive Hurricanes, not to say we don’t get our fair share of storms this time of year. We see our daily, 3:00PM storms until early-mid fall. We have compiled a few Tampa Bay Hurricane Preparedness checklists and points to keep in mind.
