If a hurricane threatens your area, you should:
Listen to the radio or TV for information
Secure your home, close storm shutters or board up your windows, secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed
Turn off propane tanks
Avoid using the phone except for serious emergencies
Move your boat if time permits
Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purposes such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other large containers with water.
You should evacuate under these conditions:
If you are directed by local authorities to do so, be sure to follow their instructions

If you live in a high-rise building, hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations
If you live on the coast, in a floodplain, near a river or on an inland waterway
