June is traditionally the start of hurricane and summer
storm season. Take precautions to stay safe, including heeding storm warnings
issued by the National Weather Service and taking shelter when appropriate.
A hurricane watch is issued if there is a threat of hurricane conditions within 24-36 hours. A warning is issued when hurricane conditions are expected in a specified area in 24 hours or less. Hurricane conditions include winds of 74 miles per hour (64 knots) or greater, and/or dangerously high tides and waves. Actions to protect life and property should begin immediately when the warning is issued.
Sign up for Alert Montgomery to receive up-to-date information on hurricane watches and warnings and other storms. Alerts can be sent to one or more electronic devices, including cell phones, text pagers and wireless PDAs, along with home and work emails.
