Hurricane watch vs hurricane warning
Do you know the difference between a hurricane watch and a hurricane warning?
What is a Hurricane Watch?
A hurricane watch is issued when there is a threat of hurricane conditions within 48 hours.
What is a Hurricane Warning?
A hurricane warning is issued when hurricane conditions (winds of 74 miles per hour or greater, or dangerously high water and rough seas) are expected in 36 hours or less.
Stay tuned to local weather authorities and have a plan to stay safe in the event of a hurricane watch or warning.
Websites such as chathamemergency.org and nhc.noaa.gov are great resources to get reliable information for hurricane preparedness.
