Hurricane Preparedness

As Hurricane Sandy moves northward in the Atlantic Ocean, the National Weather Service forecasts that this storm may significantly impact the Tri-State Area.

County Executive Edward A. Diana recommends that you take a few minutes and discuss with your family the potential impact of a tropical storm and what you can do to prepare.

The time to prepare for emergencies is before they happen. Below are some helpful links compiled by the Orange County Division of Emergency Management to assist you in preparing for a tropical storm:
