Hurricane Readiness

Hurricanes happen here!

The Atlantic hurricane season extends from June 1 through Nov. 30 every year. Since 1985, when official records began, through 2018, Beaufort County has experienced landfalls of 10 "tropical cyclones," which includes hurricanes, tropical storms and tropical depressions. See more about the history of tropical cyclones here. Most of these landings occurred in August and September.

Don't shrug the threat of hurricanes off. It's imperatives that residents and businesses in the City of Beaufort prepare for hurricanes every year.
