Hurricane season Hurricane season lasts June 1st through November 30th.
Evacuation plan An evacuation plan is a plan of where to meet in case of a hurricane. The plan usually involves leaving town, getting out of the projected path of the hurricane. If you are unable to leave town, a hurricane shelter is another option. Many shelters do not accept pets, so other arrangements will need to be made prior to evacuation. People living in flood areas are typically given a mandatory evacuation order. The evacuation plan is ready and known to all family members before the hurricane hits.
Tropical Depression Tropical cyclone in which the maximum sustained winds are 38mph or less. It appears in the middle of a thunderstorm.
