Product and Locations Mentions

Hurricanes are an education all on their own. But when you’re armed with the right information, you’ll learn that

  1. Category 1. 74-95 mph
    1. Category 2. 96-110 mph
    2. Category 3. 111-130 mph
    3. Category 4. 131-155 mph
    4. Category 5. 156+ mph
    5. Winds and rain can cause flooding, power outages, down trees, debris, etc. Perhaps a common misconception is the eye of the storm and where it makes landfall. Yes, that’s the worst part of the storm, however, a hurricane can spread over a hundred miles wide. Keep an eye on that cone for severe weather.

To stay on top of notifications and hurricane updates, we recommend the following apps.

  • NOAA Weather Radar
    • National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration
  • My Hurricane Tracker
  • Your Airline’s App
  • Hotel or Attractions app
  1. Check Tourism Bureaus. Statewide tourism bureaus will also have updates regarding the storm. For example, this is from Visit Florida’s Website.
