A Tropical Preparedness Tip from CPHC

For information when a hurricane or tropical storm threatens your area refer to the following resources.

The National Weather Service provides valuable information via the internet, NOAA Weather Radio and Local Telephone Recordings.

State and County Civil Defense, Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross. Local television and radio media provide a constant source of updated information.

Once a storm has passed through your area, be prepared for power outages that can limit information resources. Keep a battery operated or hand crank radio in your disaster supply kit.
