The wife and I spent the day at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island on Monday June 5th. On the way in I had remarked to her at just how vulnerable to storm surge the development was on west side of Bradenton, in the vicinity of Palma Sola Bay along S.R. 64 and of course Longboat Key and Anna Marie Island.
I just don't see how accurate advanced lead time for full evacuation of the barrier islands or the mainland coastal regions could ever occur. Sadly that situation exists all along the west coast of Florida and one day a terrible loss of life will occur.
