Update - 10/7/17 - Cities of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach


All guests in the mandatory evacuation order areas are being offered units further down East Beach to Perdido Key to stay until the evacuation order is lifted and they can return to their original property.

The City of Gulf Shores, in conjunction with the City of Orange Beach, will enforce a mandatory curfew beginning at 8 p.m., Saturday, through 6 a.m., Sunday. 

The curfew is in place for the safety of citizens due to expected hurricane force winds during this time. 

All vehicles should stay off roadways until the curfew has expired.

  • A Hurricane Warning is in effect for Grand Isle, La., to the Alabama/Florida border.

A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. A warning is typically issued 36 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of Tropical-Storm-Force winds -- conditions that make outside preparations difficult or dangerous.

Beginning on Saturday, October 7, the following areas are closed:
  • Gulf waters in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and along the Fort Morgan Peninsula
  • Gulf Shores public beaches and beach parking areas
  • Gulf State Park Pier

As of 9:00 a.m., CST:

  • A storm surge watch is in effect for the Alabama/Florida border to Morgan City, La.
  • A tropical storm watch is in effect for the Alabama/Mississippi border to the Okaloosa/Walton County line.
A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours. For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at hurricanes.gov.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.





Update - 10/5/17 - City Of Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism is in contact with the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and the Baldwin County Emergency Management Agency (EMA), and are monitoring information from local, state and federal agencies so that we can keep visitors informed with accurate, factual information.


  • At this time, our area is within the “cone of uncertainty.” Current weather forecasts show the storm is expected to develop into a Category 1 Hurricane this weekend with landfall by Sunday somewhere along the Gulf Coast. 

  • Visitors to the beach are strongly advised to pay attention to flags posted at all beach entry points as our area could experience strong surf conditions from the outer bands of the storm.

  • While the surf that comes with strong storms may look “fun,” this surf is very dangerous. Red flags mean dangerous rip currents are present; double red flags signify the waters are closed; please refer to http://bit.ly/BeachFlagstoKnow for the full beach flag chart. For your own safety, stay out of the water if we are under red flag conditions.

  • We encourage residents and visitors to check local news outlets or the National Weather Service for the most current weather information at http://www.weather.gov/mob/

  • As we prepare for this storm, our prayers continue to be with those in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean who are still recovering from the impact of this very active storm season.
