Learn how to stay safe before, during and after a storm
Every year residents of South Florida face hurricane season from June 1 through November 30. Planning and preparing can make a big difference in staying safe in the wake of a hurricane. As the county’s official volunteer and fundraising arm, United Way of Miami-Dade, the Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald, and Operation Helping Hands, we are here for our community before, during and after an emergency. The United Way Hurricane Resource Center offers helpful information to create a preparedness plan, as well as what to do during and after a hurricane.
