Hurricane Season Preparedness

Hurricane season preparation for GHRA members, employees and families.

Members, hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles inland. Hurricanes and tropical storms also spawn tornadoes, create storm surges along the coast, and cause power and utility outages. Here is a list of resources to help you and your family prepare for the hurricane season. If you have any questions or concerns, contact GHRA at

Evacuation Zones

Members, know your evacuation routes.

GHRA is providing you with the FEMA evacuation map.

Hurricane evacuation zones are categorized based on your zip codes which are coded in four separate zones: A, B, C, & Coastal.

  • Zip codes have been provided to help you determine what evacuation zone you live in.
  • Evacuation zones will be announced in time to evacuate. You should leave when your zone has been announced
  • Zip code evacuations allow the residents in the greatest danger, the opportunity to leave first.

Evacuation Tips

  • If you evacuate, take your disaster supply kit with you.
  • Keep at least half a tank of gas in your car at all time during hurricane seasons (June 1st to November 30th)
  • Update your disaster kit based on your needs every year.
