Hurricane Preparedness


Hurricane season officially started June 1 and ends November 30.

This year the meteorological experts at Colorado State University call for a total of twelve named storms, five hurricanes, and two major hurricanes (classified as Category 3 or stronger).

The Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has issued Hurricane Preparedness Guidelines to assist the public in preparing for Hurricane Season. Please visit the Harris County Regional Joint Information Center for more information.

The State of Texas encourages residents who may need some form of assistance during times of an emergency/disaster event to register with the STEAR program, a FREE registry that provides local emergency planners and responders with additional information on the needs in their community.
