National Hurricane Preparedness Week

Prepare for a potential tropical storm or hurricane during the week of May 7-13, 2017. NOAA National Weather Service has prepared a week of presentations to help you determine your risk, prepare an evacuation plan and emergency supplies, check your insurance plans, strengthen your home, and work with your community.

NOAA will also be traveling along the East coast on a Hurricane Awareness Tour to teach visitors about weather safety and preparedness. Visitors can also see one of the Hurricane Hunter airplanes and meet the pilots who fly into the storms to gather data. NOAA is partnering with the USAF Reserve, FEMA and FLASH, as well as many local partners.
