During a Hurricane
- Whenever possible, evacuate to a safe place, far from a hurricane’s predicted path, well before its full force arrives.
- If hurricane conditions already exist outside your location, stay put and shelter-in-place.
- Find shelter as best you can right where you are, and wait it out.
- The most violent conditions are likely to pass in 24 hours or less, though the recovery may take much longer, days or even weeks.
