Hurricane season officially began June 1st and lasts until November 30th. As we prepare for this upcoming hurricane season, the City of Houston offers the following tips to help you and your family prepare:
Know Your Risk – Visit the Houston Storm Risk Calculator at www.houstonstormrisk.org to find out what your level of risk is for flooding, storm surge, wind damage and power outages.
If you live in a hurricane evacuation area, know your zone, and be prepared to evacuate when the order is given. East and Southeast Houston, including most of District I, is in a hurricane evacuation area.
Get Prepared – Take a moment to review your emergency plan with your family, as well as make sure you have all the necessary supplies to be able to sustain yourself without electricity and running water for 5-7 days, including:
- Non-perishable foods & water
- Portable radio with extra batteries
- Flashlights and extra batteries
- First-aid kit, along with any prescription medicine
- Special items for babies and the elderly
- Toiletries and hygiene items
- Pet care items
Be Informed – During hurricane season, it’s always a good idea to pay attention to developing storms. Pay attention to local television and radio weather broadcasts, and sign up for AlertHouston emergency notifications from the City of Houston by visiting www.alerts.houstonoem.org.
If you are ordered to evacuate, you should do so without delay. Evacuation information and contraflow lane maps out of Houston are available on the Texas Department of Transportation website.
In the event of an emergency which requires evacuation, some individuals may need additional assistance leaving their homes. If you need help evacuating, dial 2-1-1 to register in advance for a ride. You can also register online.
