The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 through November 30. While most people think that only coastal regions are susceptible to damage, inland areas such as Union County often see high winds, flooding, and even tornadoes that result when a hurricane moves through the area. Union County Government has put together this list of resources to help residents and businesses stay safe during hurricane season and throughout the year.
Make a Plan
Before hurricane season begins, make a plan to ensure your family's safety. Take time to understand what hurricane watches and warnings mean, sign up for local community alerts to stay well-informed, and prepare your property for potential storm impact.
Determine an evacuation route(s), learn where shelters are, and pack a "go bag."
Learn whether your home is in a flood zone by going to our GIS and Mapping page and reviewing the county map. To see the flood zones, go to Map Layers > Natural > 2014 FEMA Zones to turn on the flood zone layer.
Review your insurance policies, create an inventory of your belongings, and take photos of your home and possessions. Back this information up so you can access these items electronically.
