2021 Hurricane Preparedness Week Scheduled

National Hurricane Preparedness Week, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service, is the time to prepare for a potential land-falling tropical storm or hurricane. This year, National Hurricane Preparedness Week is taking place May 9-15, 2021.

Hurricane Preparedness Week provides an opportunity for people across the country to prepare now for hurricane season. It educates the public about tropical cyclones, which are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena.

If you live in an area prone to tropical cyclones, prepare. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms.

Today you can determine your personal hurricane risk, find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone, and review/update insurance policies. You can also make a list of items to replenish hurricane emergency supplies and start thinking about how you will prepare your home for the coming hurricane season.

The materials are available here.

The NOAA’s website also features links to helpful resources including a Social Media Plan, Hurricane Prep During COVID-19 from the CDC, information to public shelters during COVID-19, current forecast information, hurricane safety, how to deliver the right message, and Hurricane Safe videos. View all.
