Hurricane Information

The City offers information about how to prepare for a hurricane and what to do if there is a hurricane in New York City. Through the City's Know Your Zone campaign, City residents are encouraged to find out:

  • Whether they live in one of the City's hurricane evacuation zones
  • The hazards they may face from a hurricane
  • How to prepare for a hurricane

You can look up your nearest hurricane evacuation zone and evacuation center, or get a copy of the Ready New York: Hurricanes and New York City Guide. This brochure explains how to prepare for a hurricane and comes with a map of hurricane evacuation zones.

You can also request a Know Your Zone window sticker.
