Tropical storms and hurricanes are one of this country's most dangerous weather threats.  Torrential rains, heavy winds and tornadoes can devastate towns and cause severe damage,flooding and major power outages. It doesn't take much (about 50MPH winds) to knock out power for an extended period of time due to the large number of trees in our area. In addition to the storm surge that affects our shoreline and low lying areas, there are many other dangers associated with these dangerous storms.


Hurricane season (the period during each year when hurricanes are most likely to occur) begins in June and lasts until the end of November.


The Savannah Jewish Federation and Secure Community Network provide the following resources to help you know the warning signs, hazards, and safety precautions that you should take before, during, and after a storm. Preparing before an emergency is vital to ensure health and safety.


Be safe -- You can never be too prepared!
