The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is expecting hurricane season to be busier than normal this year, with 11 to 17 named storms and five to nine possible hurricanes. The City of Houston urges all residents to know your evacuation zone and prepare for this hurricane season.  

Steps to take

  • Make a kit: Have an emergency kit with enough supplies to last 5-7 days. For a full list of supplies to have in your kits, download a copy of the City’s Disaster Preparedness Guide at houstonoem.org        
  • Make an emergency plan: If you don’t live in an evacuation area secure your windows from strong winds and select a room on the lowest floor possible to take shelter. 
  • Be informed about emergencies in your area. If you live in an evacuation area, be ready to evacuate and designate a place you’ll meet with your family. 
  • Know your neighbors. Make a plan to work together if a hurricane hits. 

To stay informed during hurricane season visit hurricanes.gov for the latest information from the National Hurricane Center, and houstonemergency.org for updates from the City of Houston.
