Hurricanes and Flagler County

Hurricanes and strong tropical storms have the potential to create hazards in Flagler County. Each storm is different based on the approach and the impacts vary from excessive wind speeds, to elevated tides and surge for coastal areas, as well as inland flooding. Storm surge and flooding can be particularly dangerous and are the cause for most storm-related accidents and injuries.

However, having a plan ahead of the storm greatly reduces your risk and consequences to your home or business. Know your evacuation zone; communities east of I-95 are more likely to experience evacuations from incoming Atlantic based storms. When evacuating leave early to avoid higher traffic volumes and consider traveling further inland or in the opposite direction of the storm. Flagler County offers evacuation assistance for those with special needs; be sure to register through the Emergency Management office. If sheltering in place be prepared for power outages by creating a storm supply kit, including extra medication for all family members and pets, food items not requiring refrigeration or cooking, and comfort items such as books, games, and toys. Remember certain non-perishable food items contain higher concentrations of sodium and should be considered for those with specific dietary concerns.

Review or obtain an inspection of your home or business construction type. This will assist you by targeting structural and non-structural aspects proven to lessen and prevent damage caused by storms. Click the links below for more tips on preparedness and get your plan today!
