What is a Hurricane Watch?

Hurricane conditions (winds of over 74 miles per hour) are possible within the designated area for which the watch is issued within 48 hours. Residents are advised to put their hurricane plan into action and secure your home and hurricane supplies during this time. Gas up motor vehicles and get cash. Stay tuned to local media for advisories on the latest forecast. Local media includes television news media (local ABC, CBS, NBC, or Fox affiliates), news talk radio (such as WIOD 610 am).
