Hurricane Hazard Risks

Hurricane Preparedness Week May 15-21, 2016  
Determine Your Risk  
At Home / On Vacation

Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem

Their impacts can be felt hundreds of miles inland. The U.S. has not been directly impacted by a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) in more than a decade. However, hurricanes such as Ike and Isaac reminded us that significant impacts can occur without it being a major hurricane.

Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 15-21, 2016) is your time to prepare for a potential land-falling tropical storm or hurricane.

Know Before You Go

2016 National Hurricane Preparedness Week kicks off today and we encourage you to take a few moments each day this week to learn more about Hurricane Season and what that means to you. Whether you are staying home or traveling during June through November, you and your family could be impacted by a hurricane and related dangers associated with these powerful storms.

Our Hurricane Zone page is your source for the latest warnings, predictions, historical information, and other resources.   This post is the first in a series which we'll post to help NOAA spread the word about Hurricane Preparedness. #HurricaneStrong
