Although South Florida has not been impacted by a storm in several years, it is important to remain prepared and informed. Below you will find several websites that provide important information that will help us all prepare for the challenges that often arise during a storm:
Additionally, the following tips can further assist you with your hurricane preparedness planning:
• According to the American Red Cross, hurricane watches are issued when hurricane conditions are a threat within 48 hours and are delivered to encourage the public to prepare and get ready if conditions suddenly change. Hurricane warnings are issued when hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours and encourage the completion of preparations and evacuation if directed to do so by authorities.
We remain hopeful that South Florida will be spared from storms, but we will be prepared should our service area be threatened. We will continuously monitor weather reports and share key information with you. Any classes, appointments, and/or events scheduled are cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date and time. An update will be sent via email and/or NBTC website for when school resumes.
