Emergency Management

The Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1 every year. New York City is most at risk August through November. But the best way to be prepared for a weather emergency is to always be prepared, no matter what month it is.

Use the maps below to identify your Hurricane Evacuation Zone. Visit nyc.gov/knowyourzone  to find the nearest hurricane evacuation center. Pets are allowed in all City evacuation centers. Be sure to transport them in a carrier and bring a leash, food, and any needed medication. Make arrangements to stay with friends or family who live outside a hurricane evacuation zone in case an evacuation order is issued for your zone.
