Prepare a Survival Kit
If you believe you will not be evacuating during a hurricane, please prepare a survival kit. Some reasons for not evacuating include:
- A mandatory evacuation is not issued.
- You are physically or financially unable to leave your home.
- You live in an area that is not prone to flooding or storm surges.
During a weather emergency, stay tuned to local news/weather bulletins, and visit the National Weather Service for the latest weather information.
