Citrus County considers mandatory evacuations west and east of Highway 19
After several hurricane models predicted that Hurricane Irma would have a more westward path yesterday, through the Suncoast Region, the National Hurricane Center updated its forecast cone.
According to an unnamed source, Citrus County officials are considering mandatory evacuations for both west of Highway 19 and up to a mile-and-a-half east of Highway 19, but not to include the Sugarmill Woods subdivision.
Information may be conveyed to Citrus County residents via Alert Citrus and other formats.
