Hurricane Preparedness

Preparing for a Hurricane or Tropical Storm

  • Prepare for a hurricane: Take basic steps now to ensure your safety should a storm hit.
     
  • Get emergency supplies: Stock your home and your car with supplies. Give yourself more time than usual to prepare your emergency food, water, and medicine supplies. Home delivery is the safest choice for buying disaster supplies; however, that may not be an option for everyone. If in-person shopping is your only choice, take steps to protect your and others’ health when running essential errands.
     
  • Make a plan: Create a family disaster plan.
     
  • Prepare to evacuate: Never ignore an evacuation order. Pay attention to local guidance about updated plans for evacuations and shelters, including shelters for your pets.
     
  • Protect older adults: Understand older adult health and medical concerns.
     
  • Protect your pets: Ensure your pet’s safety before, during, and after a hurricane.
     
  • When you check on neighbors and friends, be sure to follow social distancing recommendations (staying at least 6 feet from others) and other CDC recommendations to protect yourself and others.
     

  • Be ready to evacuate or stay at home: Always listen to authorities regarding whether you should evacuate or stay at home.
