Determine the hazards that could occur.

Hurricanes bring many hazards to U.S. coastlines and inland areas, including storm surge along the coast, inland flooding due to rainfall, tornadoes, strong winds, rip currents, and large waves. Determine the hazards that could occur based on your surrounding area and start preparing for how to handle them. Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem. Their impacts can be felt hundreds of miles inland, and significant impacts can occur without it being a major hurricane.
