Start of  "the season" is time to Get a Plan!

Start of hurricane season is time to prepare

To hear St. Augustine Fire Chief JC Costiera, who is also the city's Emergency Management Official, interview  on The Break Room discussion this topic, click here.

June 1 means the beginning of summer for most people, but for those living in hurricane prone areas, the first day of June is the first day of "the season," and time to get a plan.

That is the message from emergency preparedness officials from the local level right up to national agencies and one way they all work to deliver this annual message to raise public awareness and urge every family and business to prepare now for weather related emergencies.

One simple way to start preparing is to visit and bookmark for future reference some key web sites that will prove helpful in planning and very helpful in times of emergency. These sites have a vast amount of information regarding preparedness with a wide array of easily accessible resources, including lots of check lists and how-to suggestions. When visiting these sites, also connect through social media and download an app when available. All of this access may prove very helpful when needed quickly.


In the event of a storm emergency, the City of St. Augustine works in cooperation and in tandem with St. Johns County Department of Emergency Management to provide the most updated and specific information for its residents, and St. Johns County is working with the state wide emergency management system.




2016 Atlantic tropical cyclone names

Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms had been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. They are now maintained and updated through a strict procedure by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization.

There are six lists of names that are used in rotation and re-cycled every six years, i.e., the 2016 list will be used again in 2022. The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity.

To see all six lists and learn more about the naming process, visit the National Weather Service web site.
