Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem. Their impacts can be felt hundreds of miles inland, and significant impacts can occur without it being a major hurricane. Every hurricane can threaten people’s health and safety. Even smaller, more local events can cause flooding, power outages and other dangers that could threaten your health and safety.

By taking some time to get ready, you can make yourself, your family and your community better able to recover from a hurricane. Find out how you can keep the people who count on you safe when disaster strikes.​
