Storm Preparation Information

Prepare in advance. Hurricanes are among nature's most powerful forces, bringing destructive winds, tornadoes, and floods from torrential rains and ocean storm surges. In recent years, advances in how we predict and track these storms have improved preparedness and saved lives, but people living in hurricane-prone areas still must be prepared. Developing a family disaster plan, creating a disaster supply kit, filling your prescriptions, and staying aware of current weather situations is critical. You should plan to be self-sufficient with enough ice, water, and food for your household for at least 72 hours after a storm.
