Know where to go. If you are ordered to evacuate, know the local hurricane evacuation route(s) to take and have a plan for where you can stay. Contact your local emergency management agency for more information.
No matter where you are, please prepare for hurricanes.
Don’t wait. Communicate. Make your emergency plan today.
No one wants to be unprepared.
