Hurricane Information
Click HERE for Hurricane Irma Updates from the County's Emergency Management Department

For information shared from the National Hurricane Center and County please click HERE to visit our social media page.

As information becomes available, we will be sure to keep you updated.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic Region begins on June 1st and ends on November 30th. South Florida residents are always encouraged to develop and review their personal hurricane preparedness plans and have the right supplies in place. After a storm, roads can be difficult to navigate and help might take some time to arrive. Therefore, all residents must be ready to survive on your own for a minimum of 72 hours without electricity or water. Please take the time necessary to prepare yourself and your family NOW, because there may not be sufficient time once we are threatened with a hurricane or any hazardous tropical weather event.

According to the National Hurricane Center, increased awareness of hazardous tropical weather and its potential impacts are “vital to the public and those emergency managers charged with safeguarding lives and property.”
