Tuesday, May 7th – Build a Kit
BUILD A KIT – Just having enough supplies to make it through a hurricane isn’t enough. You need plenty to make it through what could be a long recovery period too. Prepare for AT LEAST one week. For more information visit www.gcoem.org or www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
Monday, May 6th – Make a Plan
Take some time this week – Hurricane Preparedness Week – to make sure you have a hurricane evacuation plan. Think now, about where you’d go and how you’d get there if you’re told to evacuate. Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about. For more information, visit www.gcoem.org or www.ready.gov/hurricanes .
This link from the National Hurricane Center will show you what to expect when hurricanes threaten Galveston County. The surge inundation maps indicate the height from ground level that the storm surge will reach for each category of storm.
