Hurricane Preparedness Information
Tropical storms and hurricanes are one of Tallahassee's most dangerous weather threats. Torrential rains, heavy winds and tornadoes can take our town and cause severe damage, flooding and major power outages. It doesn't take much for our area (about 50MPH winds) to knock out power for an extended period of time due to the large number of trees in our city. Because we are not a coastal community, we don't have to worry as much about storm surge; however, there are a lot of other dangers associated with these dangerous storms.
Provided below are links to local hurricane guides and weather sites which will aide in preparing you for hurricane season. If a storm is currently threatening our area, please be sure to check the talgov.com homepage constantly for all the latest news on what the City is doing to prepare for the storm, as well as specific information related to potential impacts to our area.
