***Hurricane Preparedness***

Weather events, like a severe thunderstorm, hurricane or tropical storm, which the state is most at risk of receiving until November 30, brings heavy rain and strong winds, which can cause a multitude of problems like power outages, fallen debris, and floods that often block roads and repair vehicles, prolonging damage.

When the National Hurricane Center or readings of City owned wind meters establish sustained wind speeds of 45 mph, all emergency operations will temporarily cease until the wind speeds fall below 45 mph. 
*        Residents should not go outside until after the storm passes and an all clear is given from the public safety departments within the City.
*        Be aware of standing water, down power lines and debris.
*        Follow your local news channels, as well as announcements will be issued through the City of Hollywood’s Government Access Channel (Channel 78) if  evacuation orders are given.
