Hurricane Preparedness Week — Part 2: Develop Evacuation Plan

May 8, 2017 at 8:00 am

This is part 3 in our weeklong series of preparing for a hurricane.

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you’re in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you’d go and how you’d get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn’t live in a zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about.

  • Search online today for local pet-friendly evacuation locations: https://youtu.be/9f98ixT-2I4
  • Do not get caught by dangerous flood waters, have an evacuation plan. http://1.usa.gov/1XU9NUZ
  • You may have to evacuate quickly due to a hurricane. Learn your evacuation routes & identify where you will stay.
  • Hurricanes can cause extensive flood damage in coastal & inland areas- Make a #HurricanePrep plan: ready.gov/hurricanes.
  • Keep your car’s gas tank at least half full in case you need to quickly evacuate for a #hurricane.
  • Know your community’s local #hurricane evacuation plan and identify several evacuation routes for your location.
  • Know before you go: Don’t go off course – follow official local #hurricane evacuation routes.
  • If you rely on public transportation, contact your local emergency management agency about evacuation procedures before a hurricane. p
  • Driving through flooded roadways is dangerous. Check out this @NWS PSA to see why: http://bit.ly/1Ggz3PH.
