Hurricane Information from the past
Since 1950 Anna Maria Island has not seen a hurricane make landfall within 50 miles. There are many theories regarding the many years without a strong windy season. Many say that the Tampa Bay currents “kick” hurricanes to the North. The obvious path of hurricanes generally track to the North or South of the city of Tampa and Anna Maria Island. We strongly suggest purchasing travel insurance which will cover your rental fees in the case of an evacuation. If the vacation rental that you are scheduled to stay in is uninhabitable we will find a similar accommodation on Anna Maria Island. Why worry? Take a look at the historical map below…
