dangerous storm surge, high winds, and tornadoes. The effects of
these storms can be devastating to entire communities and have long
lasting impacts. In addition to the threat posed to coastal areas,
hurricanes also impact inland locations.

specific theme to inform you about hurricane hazards or provide
information which can be used to take action. This information can
be used to save lives and property.
The themes for each day for the week are:
Monday... storm surge
Wednesday... inland flooding
Thursday... forecast process
Friday... get a plan
Saturday... take action
