hurricane update From City Hall
Residents and Businesses Need to be in the "Ready" Phase for Hurricane Matthew
 
The City's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is monitoring Hurricane Matthew's and is taking protective actions for City resources, staff, and all of our residents as soon as necessary.   Staff, lead city and partner agencies are prepared to report to the EOC at this time.   Some expected city services have been affected and ongoing updates will be posted on the City's website.
 
According to the latest information from the National Hurricane Center portions of Miami-Dade County are within the 3-Day forecast cone with expected tropical storm force winds. While Coral Gables is not in immediate danger, all residents and businesses should check their disaster kits, review their hurricane plans and remain informed.
 
  • Make sure that your emergency equipment, such as hurricane shutters and battery-powered radios, is in good working order.
  • Ensure that you have enough emergency supplies, such as non-perishable food and water, for each person in your home to last for at least three days.
  • Obtain and store materials necessary to properly secure your home.
  • Secure yard and construction debris so that they do not pose a hazard during a storm.
  • Take any tree trimmings to a local trash and recycling center at this time. Do not leave on the swale for pick up as crews will not have the time to collect any cuttings.
  • Find out if you live in a storm surge zone. If so, plan in advance where you will stay, how you will get there, and what supplies you will take. Also give yourself ample time to get to a safe area. Storm surge maps are available here: http://gisweb.miamidade.gov/communityservices/
