Hurricanes are easily tracked and have a long advanced warning period. However, their intensity, speed, and direction of motion can change quickly. Nine out of ten hurricane fatalities are caused by either a storm surge-a rapid rise in the water level driven by high winds or subsequent flooding. This brochure, produced by the Weather Channel, gives guidelines for families to follow and help families prepare for a hurricane.
