Overview A hurricane or tropical storm warning means that, within 24 hours, hurricane or tropical storm conditions are favorable for designated areas. Procedures
When a hurricane or tropical storm warning is issued:
Follow instructions issued by civil defense.
Leave immediately if ordered to do so.
Complete preparation activities, such as boarding up windows and storing loose objects.
Wedge sliding glass doors to prevent their lifting from their tracks.
Turn up your refrigerator to maximum cold and don't open unless necessary.
Evacuate areas that might be affected by storm surge flooding.
If evacuating, leave early and leave food and water for pets (shelters will not take them).
Notify neighbors and a family member outside of the warned area of your evacuation plans.
