Before the Hurricane Season Begins

Develop a plan. Know your homes vulnerability to the threats above - surge, wind, and flooding. Check your supplies - water, batteries, food. For information on developing a Hurricane Supply kit, see our page on that topic. Know where you can evacuate to - friends, relatives, a hotel?

Know when to take action - Watch vs Warning

WATCH: Hurricane conditions are possible in the specified area of the WATCH, usually within 36 hours.
WARNING: Hurricane conditions are expected in the specified area of the WARNING, usually within 24 hours. Remember that there is no such thing as a "minor hurricane." Category 1 and 2 hurricanes still can do significant damage.

Prepare before a Watch or Warning is issued and be ready to evacuate when the Watch comes or earlier if so instructed.

An Approaching Storm

As a storm approaches, you should prepare your house and your yard. Some things to consider:

  • Turn down the temperature on your freezer and refrigerator as low as possible. This will buy you more time in the event of a power loss. 24 to 48 hours before will cool the food. Avoid opening them whenever possible. If you are evacuating, probably unnecessary.
  • Before you evacuate, call at least one person out of state to let them know your plans.
  • Ensure that your Hurricane Emergency Kit is fully stocked.
  • Charge electronic devices, for example, computers, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, razors, and the like.
  • Make extra ice, bag it - this will be useful to use and to keep the freezer cold.
  • Do the same with your home air conditioner. It gets very hot and very humid very quickly. If you are evacuating, this is not necessary.
  • If you have a generator, do NOT run it inside or near the house. But make sure you have fuel to run it.
  • Make sure your car has fuel.
  • Pick up yard debris - furniture, tools, decorative items, branches - anything loose that could become a missile. We have placed furniture in the pool upon occasion.
  • Secure boats, trailers, campers, RVs, and the like in the safest place you can find. Tie them down, anchor them, or however you can best secure them. But, take into account that there may be a storm surge.
  • Secure all doors and windows with locks, and shutters if available. Plywood, properly secured, can be effective. Don't forget your garage doors.
  • Move items that may be damaged by water to higher areas of your home if you can not take them with you if evacuating. Move them away from windows in case they are broken.
  • Huge items must even be secured in big storms. An engine block was found 40 or 50 feet up in a pine tree in the Homestead (actually Redlands) area after Andrew. Don't think that something is too big to be moved by the wind.
  • Re-check tie-downs.
  • Bring cars, bikes, scooters and anything like that into your garage if possible.
  • Bring in grills or other cooking items.
  • Bring in hoses, trash cans, hot tub covers, wind-chimes, plants.
  • Caulk and fill bathtubs - extra water comes in handy for toilets and more..
  • It may sound strange, but do your laundry, dishes, and take a shower. Why? Because if you lose power, having as much clean as possible will make a big difference.
  • Check if your pool pump should be on or off.
  • Close and fasten gates so they don't swing.
  • Close chimney flues.
  • Close/latch inside doors and cabinets.

     

    If you have time, help your neighbors. Debris in their yards can easily impact your home and yard.

    During a storm.


  • Stay inside, away from windows
  • Be alert for tornadoes
  • Stay away from flood waters and storm surge. It can be deceptively strong.
  • Be aware of the eye. It may be calm, but winds can and will pick up quickly and could catch you outside.
  • Un-plug electronic devices that are not in use to avoid surge damage. This is less likely that during afternoon thunderstorms because lightening is rare in a hurricane, but it is better to be safe.
  • After a Storm

  • Know power safety - avoid downed lines
  • Know food safety - what is good and for how long.
  • Chain saw safety is critical
  • Generator safety is important too
  • Water treatment - whether water needs to be boiled or not.
  • Listen to local officials
  • Use flashlights instead of candles
  • Inspect your home for damage.
  • Stay off roads as much as possible
  • You may need to super-chlorinate your pool
  • Boat Prep

    1. Move life jackets and first aid kits to house
    2. Remove cushions and lose items (e.g. boat tops) and move to garage
    3. Anchor hatch covers
    4. Move to maximum davit height, fasten cables
    5. Unplug davits/lifts
    6. Turn off outside electricity to davits
    7. For our Boston Whaler: put in main plug on boat (take out other plugs)
    8. Tighten down davit locks
    9. Tie down boat with dock lines

    A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-
    threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the
    coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours.
    For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather
    Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at
    hurricanes.gov.
    
    A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
    within the watch area.  A watch is typically issued 48 hours
    before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force
    winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or
    dangerous.
    
    A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are
    possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.
    
    Warnings will likely be required for portions of the watch area
    Thursday morning.  In addition, interests in southwestern
    Louisiana should continue to monitor the progress of this system.
    
    For storm information specific to your area in the United
    States, including possible inland watches and warnings, please
    monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service
    forecast office. For storm information specific to your area outside
    the United States, please monitor products issued by your national
    meteorological service.
    
    
    DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
    ------------------------------
    At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Harvey
    was located near latitude 21.9 North, longitude 92.6 West. The
    depression is moving toward the northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h). A
    track toward the northwest or north-northwest at a faster forward
    speed is expected for the next 48 hours.  On the forecast track,
    Harvey should be approaching the Texas coast late Friday or Friday
    night.
    
    Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
    that maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 km/h) with
    higher gusts.  Some strengthening is forecast during the next
    48 hours, and Harvey could become a tropical storm later tonight or
    Thursday and a hurricane Friday or Friday night.
    
    The latest minimum central pressure reported by the Hurricane Hunter
    is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).
    
    
    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    RAINFALL:  Harvey is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
    10 to 15 inches and isolated maximum amounts of 20 inches over the
    Texas coast and southwest Louisiana through next Wednesday, with
    heavy rainfall beginning Friday. During the same time period Harvey
    is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 9 inches
    along its outer radius including parts of south, central, and
    eastern Texas and the lower Mississippi Valley. Rainfall from Harvey
    may cause life-threatening flooding.
    
    STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
    tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
    rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water is
    expected to reach the following heights above ground if the peak
    surge occurs at the time of high tide...
    
    Port Mansfield to High Island...4 to 6 ft
    
    The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
    the northeast of the landfall location, where the surge will be
    accompanied by large and destructive waves.  Surge-related flooding
    depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and
    can vary greatly over short distances.  For information specific to
    your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather
    Service forecast office.
    
    WIND:  Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
    area late Friday or Friday night, with tropical storm conditions
    possible by Friday.
    
    SURF:  Swells generated by Harvey are likely to affect the Texas,
    Louisiana, and northeast Mexico coasts by Friday.  These swells are
    likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
    Please consult products from your local weather office.

    Tropical Storm Harvey Forecast Discussion Number 14-Issued at 1000 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017
    
    000
    WTNT44 KNHC 240238
    TCDAT4
    
    Tropical Depression Harvey Discussion Number  14
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL092017
    1000 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017
    
    Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft suggest
    that Harvey's structure has consolidated a little bit, with the
    pressure falling to 1002 mb and the radius of maximum winds
    shrinking to 60 n mi.  However, there have been no reliable reports
    of winds indicating that the cyclone has reached tropical-storm
    strength, and the convective cloud pattern remains ragged. Based on
    these data, the initial intensity is held at 30 kt. Perhaps the most
    significant finding of the aircraft is that the center was to the
    east of the previous advisory position.
    
    The initial motion is a rather uncertain 325/2.  A weak mid-level
    ridge to the northeast of Harvey should cause the cyclone to move
    on a northwestward or north-northwestward track through 48-72 h,
    and this motion should bring the center inland over southern Texas.
    Later, steering currents weaken as a ridge builds over the
    southwestern United States and a trough drops down from the Plains.
    As a result, Harvey should decelerate while making landfall and
    move very slowly just inland of the coast.  There is a major spread
    amongst the large-scale models from 72-120 h, with the UKMET
    forecasting a slow northward motion into eastern Texas, the GFS a
    southwestward motion over Texas, and the ECMWF a cyclonic loop that
    moves the system back over the Gulf of Mexico.  Given the
    uncertainty, the new forecast track shows a slow motion over
    southern Texas during that time, with a change from the small right
    turn of the previous forecast to a small left turn.  Overall, the
    track lies a little to the right of the consensus models through 72
    h.
    
    An upper-level low seen in water vapor imagery over the
    northwestern Gulf of Mexico appears to be weakening, and as this
    happens Harvey should end up in a low shear environment.  This
    should allow strengthening over deep warm water in the western Gulf
    of Mexico.  The new intensity forecast is adjusted slightly to show
    Harvey explicitly becoming a hurricane in 48 h, and some additional
    strengthening could occur between the 48 h point and landfall.
    After landfall, Harvey is expected to weaken.  However, the
    forecast track keeps the system close enough to the Texas coast
    that this weakening is likely to be slower than normal.
    
    Since Harvey has moved slower than anticipated during the past
    6-12 h, warnings are not yet required for portions of the Texas
    coast.  Warnings are likely to be issued sometime on Thursday.
    
    Key Messages:
    
    1. Harvey is likely to bring multiple hazards, including heavy
    rainfall, storm surge, and possible hurricane conditions to portions
    of the Texas coast beginning on Friday.
    
    2. Heavy rainfall is likely to spread across portions of eastern
    Texas, Louisiana, and the lower Mississippi Valley from Friday
    through early next week and could cause life-threatening flooding.
    Please refer to products from your local National Weather Service
    office and the NOAA Weather Prediction Center for more information
    on the flooding hazard.
    
    3. A Storm Surge Watch is in effect from Port Mansfield to High
    Island, Texas, indicating the possibility of life-threatening
    inundation from rising water moving inland from the coast during the
    next 48 hours.  For a depiction of areas at risk, see the Storm
    Surge Watch/Warning Graphic at hurricanes.gov.
    
    4. The Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map is available on the NHC
    website.  This product depicts a reasonable worst-case scenario -
    the amount of inundation that has a 10 percent chance of being
    exceeded at each individual location.  Because the Flooding Map is
    based on inputs that extend out only to about 72 hours, it best
    represents the flooding potential in those locations within the
    watch area.
