Hurricane Season: June 1 - Nov. 30

Our region was struck by Hurricane Matthew in October, 2016, and then Hurricane Irma in 2017.  Many people are still recovering from these hurricanes. And many in our area remember the infamous 2004 Atlantic hurricane season when Floridians were struck by four hurricanes in 44 days. Most of us in the area have learned firsthand the importance of preparedness. And the experts are predicting a busy 2018 hurricane season. For those who are new to the area, once the storm is approaching, it can be too late to find necessary supplies and make plans to deal with lengthy power outages, damages to our homes and other issues. On this page, you’ll find information to help develop your hurricane preparedness plan and links to other sources of assistance.
