Hurricanes & Floods


Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. Have a plan that should be tailored to family's specific needs. Also, have a plan for your home and business that you can implement should a storm threaten our area. 

Should a Hurricane Watch or Warning be issued for South Florida, stay tuned to local media and sign up to Alert Cooper City to receive emergency notifications from the City. 


Make a Plan
  • Your plan should be tailored to your family’s specific needs.
  • Whether you own a home or a business, review your insurance policies.
  • If you have hurricane shutters, check that they will work properly before storm season starts.
  • Store important documents in a portable and weatherproof storage container. If necessary, make digital copies and store them with password protection.
