Hurricane Season

The Hurricane Season officially starts on June 1 and continues into fall, but now is time for all Stuart residents to make preparations for the season with the record-setting 2005 season as a guide! Hurricane

When a tropical storm or hurricane threatens the National Hurricane Center will issue advisories based on the storm's projected strength and estimated time of landfall.

General Preparation

Check with your employer to see if you will have any special job responsibilities when a storm threatens. Have a clear understanding that you will require an appropriate amount of time to prepare your home and family.

Assign an emergency meeting place in case your family gets separated. Designate an out of town family member or friend as an emergency contact.

Write down the important points in your plan so it is clear who will handle each task and you won't forget anything in the heat of the moment.
