What to Do in the Event of a Tropical Cyclone

Tropical cyclones are massive storm systems that form over the ocean and move towards land. The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale rates tropical cyclones’ maximum sustained winds on a Category 1-5 scale. The higher the category, the greater potential for property damage. Threats from tropical cyclones include high winds, heavy rainfall, storm surge, coastal and inland flooding, rip currents, and tornadoes.

Before

  • Review your five steps on your Pathways to Preparedness
  • Decide early whether you will evacuate, and where you will go if ordered to leave
  • Prepare your home

During

  • If you don’t live in an evacuation zone, find a safe room within your home (an interior room, closet, or bathroom)
  • Do not go outside during the storm until the National Weather Service confirms the storm has left the area

After

  • Return home when local officials say it is safe
  • Check in with family and friends by texting or using social media
  • Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters
