The days and hours before a hurricane arrives are vital for making preparations, including knowing what to do in the event of an evacuation and how to remain safe once the storm hits.

Hurricanes, which form over the water and move inland, may cause high winds, heavy rainfall, storm surges, rip currents, tornadoes, and flooding.
Peak hurricane season occurs from mid-August through mid-October when a majority of the season’s tropical storms and hurricanes occur, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The Department of Homeland Security, through its Ready national public service campaign, has assembled some hurricane preparedness tips for every stage of the storm. It includes evacuation tips, what to include in a disaster supply kit and how to create a family communication plan.
