Hurricane season begins in June and lasts through November, and though some years we never see much action along the east coast it’s always a good idea to be prepared.
The most important preparation for hurricane season in Florida is knowing your evacuation zone. Storm surge during a hurricane is dangerous; having the ability to move buildings due to powerful winds and flooding and oftentimes evacuation is necessary. Knowing your evacuation zone, when to evacuate, and where to evacuate will help you and your family stay prepared before the worst during hurricane season.

In the event of an evacuation, you and your family may need a temporary place to stay. Those that are not fortunate to have friends or another family in a nearby state may need to find temporary housing.
