Hurricane Preparedness

Don't miss a hurricane update!

Whether you are a full-time resident or a seasonal resident, knowing where to find information in case of a storm is the first step to hurricane preparedness. Waiting for a storm to nearly make landfall may make it difficult to secure supplies and be prepared when you find yourself in the path of a storm. Stay informed and follow local and national news networks to ensure you are prepared.

Local & National Media Outlets

Before a hurricane:

  • Stay informed about the storm by monitoring local news and weather updates.
  • Stock up on essential supplies, such as food, water, batteries, and medications.
  • Refill your prescriptions early.
  • If you are in your third trimester of your pregnancy, please check in with your obstetrician's office.
  • Secure your home by boarding up windows and doors, reinforcing garage doors, and trimming trees and shrubs.
  • Have an evacuation plan in place if necessary and ensure your car has a full tank of gas.
  • Ensure that your important documents and valuables are stored in waterproof containers or taken with you if you evacuate.

During a hurricane:

  • Stay inside and away from windows, doors, and exterior walls.
  • Listen to updates and follow instructions from local officials.
  • Turn off electricity and gas if instructed to do so.
  • If flooding occurs, move to higher ground.
  • Avoid driving or walking through flooded areas.

After a hurricane:

  • Wait until local officials declare it safe to return home.
  • Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters.
  • Check your home for damage and turn off electricity and gas if necessary.
  • Contact your insurance company to report any damage and begin the claims process.
  • Stay informed about local recovery efforts and resources available to you.

Coping with Hurricane Ian


If you have a medical condition that requires ongoing treatment using medical equipment powered by electricity or medicines that require refrigeration, it is important to consult your physician BEFORE a natural disaster.
