The City of Sarasota is vulnerable to a number of natural hazards including the effect of flood
and wind damage caused by hurricanes, tropical storms, wither storms, tornados, and wildfires.
With a sizable amount of the City’s land in a floodplain, an aging population, and history of
natural hazard damages, it is clear that a focus on hazard mitigation will likely go a long way to
benefiting the overall well-being of the City’s residents. The Sarasota County Unified Local
Mitigation Strategy 2009 has been constructed in accordance with the requirements of the 2000
Disaster Management Act, and will provide the City and its citizens a better understanding of the
natural hazards the City faces.
