ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- If an evacuation order is issued for your area, do you know which zone you're inside or where you're supposed to go?

The Florida Division of Emergency Management has a map for each county posted on its website, showing generalized evacuation zones and accessible routes.

An important caveat: they are posted as a reference and any specific evacuation order is issued by local emergency managers.

The two biggest evacuation routes, if necessary, are I-75 north to the George state line and I-4 into Orlando. This year, the Florida Department of Transportation will not be reversing the lanes to one-ways.

Instead, crews will open the shoulders to make room for all the traffic.

Tolls across the state have been suspended.
