Public Information Statement
National Weather Service New York NY
602 AM EDT MON MAY 16 2016

...National Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 15 to May 21...
...Develop an Evacuation Plan...

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm
surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you`re in a home that would be
unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you`d go and
how you`d get there if told to evacuate.

You do not need to travel hundreds of miles.

Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn`t live in a
zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as
your evacuation destination.

Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not
permit them.

Put your plan in writing for you and those you care about.

The next statement will focus on Securing an Insurance Check-up.
