Dorian spared Palm Beach County, but we still have almost 3 months in the 2019 Hurricane Season, so it’s a good idea to remain vigilant and to be prepared.
The Town of Jupiter sent out a great email (for original email, please click here) on September 1st, when Palm Beach County ordered mandatory evacuations for residential structures in Zone A and Zone B in Palm Beach County. Here are highlights, which most can find useful:
The first part of knowing how to prepare for a hurricane is to Know Your Zone. Locate your home on the Palm Beach County Know Your Zone map, which gives evacuation information based on the category of the storm.
