Keep a battery-powered or hand-cranked radio and extra batteries available

Local media will relay instructions about:

  • Orders to evacuate.
  • Details about evacuation routes.
  • Locations of evacuation shelters.
  • How to safely stay where you are.
  • Where to find assistance.
  • Weather warnings and watches.

Get a NOAA Weather Radio so you can hear severe weather warnings directly from the National Weather Service.

Be ready. Be willing to help.
