Hurricane Preparedness


Madeira Beach is located on a barrier Island from the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the Boca Ciega Bay Intercostal to the east.  Hurricane, tropical storms and other threatening weather can present flood hazards to residents due to high tides, storm surges caused by winds, and heavy rainfall. Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.

Tropical storms and hurricanes hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. The National Weather Service is responsible for protecting life and property through issuance of timely watches and warnings. Good preparation is essential!
