5/8/2017 - Hurricane Preparedness Week 2017 May 7-13, 2017

It only takes one storm to change your life and community. Tropical cyclones are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to tropical cyclones, you need to be prepared. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms. The National Hurricane Center and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center issue watches, warnings, forecasts, and analyses of hazardous tropical weather.

Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 7-13, 2017) is your time to prepare for a potential land-falling tropical storm or hurricane. Learn how with the daily tips below and related links. Share these with your friends and family to ensure that they're prepared.

2017 Evacuation Zone Identification Survey

The Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH)® conducted an online and telephone survey of emergency managers in 222 coastal cities, counties, parishes, and regions from Texas to Maine to compile available resources on local evacuation zones and storm surge mapping for consumers.
