At the beginning of hurricane season:

  • Prepare emergency supplies and store bottled drinking water.
  • Store flashlights and extra batteries.
  • Clean storm gutters and drains.
  • Prepare your home for high winds and rain.
  • Repair/replace storm shutters.
  • Check your property insurance policy for appropriate coverage.

  • Bring in outdoor objects such as lawn furniture, toys, and garden tools. Anchor objects that cannot be brought inside.
  • Check/replace emergency supplies and store bottled drinking water.
  • Review evacuation plans.
  • Keep a supply of flashlights and extra batteries handy.

During the storm:

  • Listen to a battery-operated radio or television for hurricane progress reports. Stay inside, away from windows, skylights, and glass doors.
  • Keep a supply of flashlights and extra batteries handy.
  • If an evacuation is ordered, leave as soon as possible.
