Newport Hurricane Evacuation Map

Newport Emergency Management announced residents in evacuation zones should begin preparing for evacuation. Evacuation is not mandatory at this time.

According to the Newport Emergency Management, now is the time for some Newport residents to prepare for evacuation.

While not yet mandatory, residents living in immediate waterfront areas or areas prone to flooding, should plan now for their evacuation. If you ha

ve a place off island to go, it is advisable for you to take advantage of that. There is a potential for bridges to and from Aquidneck Island to be closed as early as Monday morning so plan accordingly. 

If residents choose to stay in an area recommended for evacuation, they may be isolated from emergency and rescue personnel. 

A Red Cross emergency shelter will be set up at Gaudet Middle School in Middletown for those that may need it beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday night.
