Hurricane Information

How will I know if I should evacuate?
Your local officials will tell you if you should evacuate, and when to leave. Evacuations must begin many hours before the storm arrives, often when the sun is shining and skies are clear. That’s the only way to get everyone out before winds and flooding make roads unsafe or impassable.

During a hurricane watch, stay turned to your local radio and television stations for Emergency Alert System (EAS) information. If you don’t have one, consider getting a NOAA Weather Alert Radio. NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts on the high-band FM frequency 162.550 MHz. Also, you can check the National Hurricane Center online for more information.

Be prepared to evacuate before you receive a warning, follow instructions, and leave quickly. DO NOT DELAY.
