In 2013, Rhode Island's 21 coastal communities received community-wide evacuation maps from the United States Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) as a product of the Hurricane Evacuation Study. The maps show Hurricane Evacuation Zones that are recommended to be evacuated from during potential worst-case Hurricane Surge Inundation. 

Evacuation Zone “A”, shown in red, is recommended to be evacuated prior to an expected category 1 or 2 hurricane.  Evacuation Zone “B”, shown in yellow is recommended to be evacuated prior to an expected category 3 or 4 hurricane. For more information on the hurricane categories view the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
