Be Prepared for Hurricane Season

July 8, 2021

The long hurricane season began June 1 and is expected to be an active one. Connecticut has largely been spared from major hurricanes in recent years – for that we are thankful – but residents should always be prepared.

The Atlantic hurricane season ends on November 30 – with mid-August to mid-October the period when Connecticut historically faces threats from hurricanes and tropical storms. These storms are unpredictable and that's why you should always be prepared and have a plan of action in the event of a serious weather event.
 
The Connecticut Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security website contains useful resources to help you stay informed, prepare, and stay safe during many emergencies.

Make sure you have an emergency supply kit, an evacuation plan, and a plan to safeguard your home and possessions, so you and your family are safe during hurricane season.
