Tropical Storm/Hurricane Preparation Guide

Home » Tropical Storm/Hurricane Preparation Guide

Depending on the severity of the storm and the projected track of the storm we may implement part or all of our Tropical Storm or Hurricane plan.  Any coastal visitor should listen to state and local officials if a warning or watch is issued and follow their directions.

Hurricane Watch:  Hurricane conditions are possible in the area of the watch, usually within 36 hours.
Hurricane Warning:  Hurricane conditions are expected in the area of the warning, usually within 24 hours.
