AN IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATE FROM LEGISLATOR KOPEL: HURRICANE SEASON IS HERE!

Hurricane Scale

Hurricane season for Nassau County began on June 1st and continues through November 30th.   The best way to protect your family and pets during a major storm or emergency is to be prepared ahead of time. 


Superstorm Sandy was the worst natural disaster to hit Long Island in 75 years. Not since the infamous “Long Island Express” Hurricane of 1938 has our region endured such widespread devastation from a weather event. Ninety percent of Long Islanders lost electricity. Many residents went weeks with no power. Many were left homeless and lives were uprooted. Life in Nassau County was forever changed for thousands residing in our coastal communities.


Nassau County Legislator Howard J. Kopel reminds you that although we cannot prevent hurricanes, we can certainly prepare for them by creating an emergency plan ahead of time for you and your family that will help you to stay organized and safe.



Check out Nassau County Office of Emergency Management’s
website for hurricane preparedness information and emergency contacts:



The Nassau County Office of Emergency Management’s website offers general hurricane preparedness information plus links to emergency shelter locations, evacuation routes for Nassau residents, survival kit essentials, ways to protect pets and animals, disaster checklists to keep you prepared, disaster checklists for those with special needs, and emergency contact numbers.
