The 2022 hurricane season officially begins today, June 1 and runs through November 30 and the City of Miami Beach wants to provide the following information to ensure the safety of all of our residents and visitors.

Hurricane Season Forecast

According to NOAA Climate Prediction Center, the 2022 season outlook predicts above-normal hurricane activity.

For the 2022 hurricane season, NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.

Regardless of how many storms are predicted, we need to be prepared at all times for the possibility of a direct hit.

Have A Plan & Build A Kit

If you have not taken steps to prepare your households, now is the time to make sure you have a plan and build a disaster supply kit. Consumers can purchase qualifying disaster preparedness supplies exempt from tax during the 2022 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday.

COVID-19 Precautions

  • Remember when considering your evacuation location, it is advisable to avoid groups/gatherings if you are not vaccinated. The CDC provides guidance for preparing for hurricanes under COVID-19.
  • Public evacuation centers will be made available when needed, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, locations may reduce capacity at any time. Social distancing and other restrictions may still be in place. Make sure that you take proper Miami Beach identification with you; you might need it to re-enter the city after damage and safety assessments are completed by official staff.
  • Consider packing additional disinfecting wipes, masks and hand sanitizer when putting together your preparedness kit.
