Hurricane season is always a time of great stress for the residents of Florida. The official start of hurricane season is June 1st and ends November 1st. When the meteorologists let us know that there is a storm approaching, we should all take notice. Hurricanes are unpredictable by nature. The path the hurricane will take is unknown, but meteorologists will use a computer model to give us the best estimate. The need to be prepared is paramount to your safety. This is not meant to scare anyone, but is meant to emphasize the need to be prepared to evacuate or shelter in place.
Should a hurricane impact us this season (whether imminently or in the future), the Cape Coral Police Department is integrated with the City Emergency Operations Center as part of a multi-agency team dedicated to keeping you safe. As part of this, during any event we will publish constant hurricane updates on a special page on our website, which will also cross-post to social media. This link will be provided and publicized should a weather event impact our city.
Please read the guidelines below from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on how to be as safe as possible before, during and after a hurricane.
