Evacuations are the responsibility of local officials. I'm looking for confirmation, but the report I saw indicates that there was no official evacuation.

It's not that bad, I have been through worse hurricanes than this. There's no reason for evacuation right now. I think Alex will continue on a north eastern path causing maybe some beach erosion possibly some light damage. It's not really as bad as you may think.
