Story Bolts And Etching Left

  • Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same weather phenomenon; we just use different names for these storms in different places. In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, the term "hurricane" is used. The same type of disturbance in the Northwest Pacific is called a "typhoon".
  • Hurricane Safety Actions

    • Know if you live in an evacuation area. Know your home's vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind. Have a family plan.
    • At the beginning of hurricane season (June), check your supplies, replace batteries and rotate your stock of food and water.
    • If a storm threatens, listen to your local authorities. Evacuate if ordered.
