What can I expect if a storm approaches?
The National Weather Service issues public warnings concerning expected floods and storms. Local television and radio stations provide local weather information and advisories, such as warnings for flash floods, heavy rains, tropical storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

A hurricane watch indicates that a hurricane poses a possible threat within 24 to 36 hours. A hurricane warning indicates that hurricane conditions are expected within 24 hours. You should prepare to take action, up to and including evacuation.
