CZM Hurricane Preparedness Kit

Find information on this topic from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM).

We've all seen it on the news. Long lines at the grocery stores and empty shelves at home-supply warehouses as the hurricane bears down on some unfortunate coastal community. Like most things in life, the time to prepare for a hurricane is well before you hear warnings on your local radio station. With hurricane season in Massachusetts starting on June 1 and peaking in August and September, the time to prepare is the beginning of spring and throughout the summer, especially if a storm is approaching. Any named storm in the Bahamas has the potential to hit New England, so stay tuned to the local weather forecasts and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Weather Radio, and see CZ-Tip - The Complete Guide to Online Hurricane Tracking for Massachusetts for more on how to keep an eye on the storms. Also, use the information below to help you prepare to weather these storms.
