Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30. Follow these key steps to be sure you, your family and your business are ready in the event a destructive storm heads for our shores.


Where will you go? What evacuation route will you take? What supplies, medications, and documents will you need? It's important to sort all of these details out well before a storm approaches.

Create a plan for you, your family and your business.



Your kit should contain enough food, water and medications to support yourself and your family for at least 3 days. If you have pets, include supplies for their needs as well.
