Hurricanes are severe tropical storms that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. People who live in hurricane prone communities should know their vulnerability, and what actions should be taken to reduce the effects of these devastating storms. The information on this page can be used to save lives at work, home, while on the road, or on the water.

Step 1: Make A Plan

  • Prepare your family with an emergency plan.
  • Designate a location away from the storm, in case of evacuation.
  • Prepare your church or business with Work Place Plans.
  • Have a plan to protect and care for your animals. More Information
  • Plan to protect your property.
  • If you own a boat (or jet ski) be aware of marine safety. In high winds and storm surge, boats become projectiles, so please secure marine vehicles as much as possible.

Step 2: Put Together a Supply Kit

  • Get an Emergency Supply Kit, which includes items like non-perishable food, water, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights, cell phone charger, and batteries. You may want to prepare a portable kit and keep it in your car in case you are told to evacuate.
  • Prepare now! When a storm hits you may not have time to organize what you need, or may forget crucial items in the rush.

Step 3: Be Informed

  • Familiarize yourself with the terms that are used to identify a hurricane.
    • A hurricane watch means a hurricane is possible in your area. Be prepared to evacuate. Monitor local radio and television news outlets or listen to NOAA Weather Radio for the latest developments.
    • A hurricane warning is when a hurricane is expected in your area. If local authorities advise you to evacuate, leave immediately.


In response to the devastating hurricanes that have hit the United States’ eastern seaboard and gulf coast, many states have drawn up evacuation routes and plans for coastal cities. This is something of which everyone should be aware. Even if you do not live in a coastal area, please be aware because your area may be an evacuation zone. For your convenience we have compiled links to all eastern and gulf states’ evacuation routes.

The best thing you can do is be ready. Being prepared can save you and your family’s lives when disaster strikes.
