The City of Rosenberg and the Rosenberg Police Department would like to remind citizens the official start of hurricane season for the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico begins June 1 and runs until November 30. Are you ready?

May 24 – 30 is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Here is some information to help you and your family be prepared and stay safe should a hurricane affect our area. Basic services such electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even a week or longer. Having an emergency kit can help you manage during these outages. This means having enough of your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. Prepare a Disaster Supply Kit for your family and update the kit every year. Don’t forget often overlooked items like extra medication and food for pets. Click here for a list of recommended emergency supplies.

Hurricanes can produce winds in excess of 155 miles per hour. Along with excessive winds come flying debris and flooding.
