NYC – Do You Know Your Zone?

June 1 is the start of Atlantic hurricane season, so now is the time to prepare your family or business for the risk of hurricanes and coastal storms. Get started by finding out whether your home or business is located in one of NYC’s six hurricane evacuation zones. These zones are ranked by their danger of flooding from storm surge (with zone 1 being the most likely to flood). In the event of a hurricane or coastal storm, residents in these zones may be ordered to evacuate. 

The New York City Office of Emergency Management recommends taking the following steps:

  • Use NYC’s Hurricane Evacuation Zone Finder or call 311 to find out whether your home or business is located in a hurricane evacuation zone. 
  • Understand hurricane hazards and the steps you can take to prepare. 
  • Sign up for Notify NYC. Get the latest emergency information via text, phone, email, fax, Twitter (@NotifyNYC), BlackBerry Messenger, and instant messenger.
