Weather Advisory – Watching Hurricane Matthew

Weather Advisory 1

If you reside along the US east coast, chances are, you’ve been following the progress of Hurricane Matthew.

Hurricane Matthew has become an intense and dangerous storm – briefly reaching Category 5 status in just a matter of 36 hours a couple days ago. Even now, it remains a powerful Category 4 storm as it bears down on the Carribean.

While we don’t know yet whether Matthew will make landfall in the US; many states along the US east coast aren’t taking chances and have or are preparing to declare a State of Emergency.

HART Emergency Service Procedures/Routes/Maps


As with any major weather event, I will be in #StormMode beginning Wednesday morning. This means that all scheduled blog posts will be suspended until the storm has passed and major effects are no longer being felt throughout the region. During this time, social media posts will be relegated to weather updates, school/road closures, transit detours/suspensions, and other important information. The Daily Transit News Roundup will still be published.

Both Hillsborough Area Regional Transit & the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority provide emergency bus services when evacuations are ordered. These special routes are designed to bring people who have no other place to go – to designated shelters. For further information regarding these services, please contact HART [(813)-254-4278 or by visiting] or PSTA [(727)-540-1900 or by visiting].

Further updates will be made as information becomes available. In the meantime, please monitor local media outlets for the latest.
