Hurricane LAURA

This graphic shows an approximate representation of coastal areas under a hurricane warning (red), hurricane watch (pink), tropical storm warning (blue) and tropical storm watch (yellow). The orange circle indicates the current position of the center of the tropical cyclone.

Plan for Storm surge, Heavy Rains, Strong Winds, and Flooding.
Let’s start PREPARING. Things you can do now:
– Have enough food and drinking water for a few days – including all the pets!
– Check your local storm drains and help clean/remove the debris around them.
– Clean your gutters.
– Review emergency plans with your family.
– If you live near water or an area that floods, prepare to relocate to higher ground, including your car.
– Secure outdoor furniture and trash cans.
– Order medications and try to get treatments like dialysis before the storm.
– Test generators, sump pumps, flashlights, radios, and fuel up the car if you have one. (Never run generators indoors).
– Tune into local news and weather on TV, radio, social media, your local emergency management office, and download some weather apps.
