How will I know when to evacuate?

Your local officials will tell you. During a Hurricane Watch, listen to your radio or television constantly. Emergency officials can interrupt routine broadcasts to give special weather updates, warning messages, and evacuation information. Messages will also be disseminated through Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram.)

National Weather Service
