Sen. Tom Carper wants to remind Delawareans to prepare for the upcoming storm approaching the state. Below is information for constituents about hurricane preparedness and useful resources. Proper preparation for hurricanes can help save homes, property, and even lives.

Hurricanes and other tropical disturbances can be unpredictable and can suddenly change course and intensity. As Hurricane Joaquin approaches the East Coast and the Mid-Atlantic region, follow your local news and regularly visit the Delaware Emergency Management Agency website  and the National Hurricane Center’s website. Both will provide the most updated information on the storm's trajectory, including its expected impact on Delaware.

I strongly encourage everyone to think ahead and create emergency preparedness kits so that you and your family can be better prepared for this storm. Visit FEMA’s emergency preparedness website to learn what to include in your kits. It is always better to be over prepared in the case of an emergency.

If you need help or have questions, please contact my offices Monday - Friday, and we will do our best to assist you with your needs.
