After a Hurricane

Post Hurricane Action

What to Do After a Hurricane

  • Contact local officials to see if it is safe to return
  • Check with officials for a safe route to return
  • Make sure your residence is safe
  • Be cautious of downed power lines
  • Follow all instructions of local officials
  • Do not drink water until notified that it is safe
  • Be cautious of spoiled food
  • Take inventory of destroyed and damaged property
  • Contact your insurance company

Power Outages

When a hurricane strikes, it often causes widespread power outages. Restoring power after a major outage is a big job that involves much more than simply throwing a switch or removing a tree from a line. Our goal is to restore power SAFELY to the greatest number of people in the shortest time possible.

Stay clear of trees that may have fallen on power lines.

Remember, a power outage may effect thousands of other customers, so please be patient as we work to restore your power safely and efficiently.

View more information on power restoration.

The Recovery

Responsibility for the cleanup falls to numerous local, state and federal agencies. A local disaster coordinator/director or his representative will be on hand to help residents in this effort. But, in the meantime, help your neighbors. Recovery quickens with cooperation from all.

  • Notify your insurance company
  • Apply for relief with FEMA
  • Protect property
  • Remember, recovery is a team effort

For more information about hurricane preparedness, survival and relief, visit the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website.
