TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The evacuation order issued for Zone B in Hillsborough County is now mandatory as Hurricane Ian approaches the area, officials said Tuesday.

Hillsborough County Emergency officials had issued a mandatory evacuation for Zone A, and a voluntary evacuation for Zone B on Monday.

The order for Zone A took effect at 2 p.m. Monday.

On Tuesday morning, officials said the evacuation order had been amended to make evacuations in Zone B mandatory.

The order will begin at 12 p.m. Tuesday, and affects about 90,000 additional residents.

All residents in living in Zone A and B, and mobile and manufactured homes must be evacuated by 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The orders affect about 390,000 residents in total, officials said.
