How to Prepare for a Hurricane
Hurricane season begins June 1st and runs through November 30th. Below are helpful links where you can get updated storm information, planning tools, shelter information and more. Updates regarding Jupiter information and closings will be available via the Palm Beach County Resident Information Line at (561) 743-7013.
Watches, Warnings & Local Communication
Palm Beach County has a community notification system to alert its cities and towns of hurricanes and floods. This system uses TV Channels 5, 12, 25, 29 (Comcast channels 03, 09, 10 and 11) and all radio stations. During major storms, as conditions permit, the town is patrolled by police officers, stormwater, public works, water utilities and other staff to identify safety hazards and areas of flooding. In the event winds reach 45 mph, public safety personnel (including police and fire rescue) will not patrol. If you need assistance, always call 911 for emergencies, and for non-emergency assistance from police or fire rescue, call (561) 799-4445.

Special Notice to Boaters
Draw bridges over our local waterways will typically be locked in a down position when a hurricane watch is issued. The town recommends that any boat owners who require draw bridges to be raised to move underneath need to move their boats to other locations immediately. View more information on preparing your boat.
