[ARCHIVED] Check Your Hurricane Preparations and Plans

HurricanePlan

The City of Pembroke Pines is closely monitoring Tropical Depression Nine, which has the potential to strengthen into Hurricane Hermine. The National Hurricane Center advises that this weather system is expected to turn northwest this weekend and intensify in strength. While the path is not yet known, South Florida may experience effects such as tropical storm or hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall beginning on Monday evening and continuing into mid-week -- the extent and location of impacts is still highly uncertain. We ask everyone to remain prepared. For preparation information and resources, please visit www.ppines.com/hurricane.  As a reminder, the days before a possible storm are not the time to trim your trees or bring bulk items to the curb. If possible, please refrain from placing new bulk trash items out. Unsecured debris can become dangerous projectiles during a storm, causing property damage and impeding the movement of first responders.

Be sure your emergency plan is in place and you have adequate supplies for everyone in your household such as:

  • Water – one gallon per person per day for at least three days
  • Food – at least a three-day supply of non-perishable items
  • Manual can opener
  • Disposable cups, plates, and utensils
  • First aid kit and any prescription medicine required by family members
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Flashlights
  • Radio (battery-powered or hand-crank) 
  • Extra batteries
  • Cell phone with chargers and backup batteries
  • Cash or traveler’s checks
  • Copies of important documents – such as birth certificates and insurance policies
