emergency services & weather information


Here at Tidewater Beach Resort, we take the safety of our residents and disaster preparedness seriously. We have complied some helpful links and information to better inform you if there is ever an emergency that may potentially affect the residents of Tidewater.

The most common potential disaster in our area is the threat of windstorms, hurricanes, and storm surges.

Please use the recommendation from the Bay County Emergency Center advisories (below) for evacuation, be it voluntary or mandatory.

Hurricanes are tropical cyclones with torrential rains and sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or greater which blow in a counterclockwise direction around a central “eye.”

Hurricane winds can exceed 155 miles per hour and severely affect areas hundreds of miles inland. As hurricanes approach the coast, a huge dome of water called a storm surge crashes into the coastline, causing major damage to everything in its path. About nine out of ten people killed in hurricanes are victims of the storm surge.

Hurricanes also spawn tornadoes and cause severe flooding from heavy rains. They are also classified into five categories, based on their wind speeds, central pressure, and damage potential.

County uses public schools for hurricane shelters. Depending on the nature of the event and school

construction / renovation, different schools may be used each year. Stay tuned to local media or call 850-784-4000 to find out which schools may be utilized in any given event.

In the event you may have to evacuate the area, please look at the following site of the different Bay County Florida disaster evacuation zones.
Before and after wind events the surf can be quite treacherous. Make sure you follow the flag warnings and always follow rip current warnings.
