Hurricane Guide
June 1 is the official start of Hurricane Season each year. Camden County, being a coastal county, is particularly at risk for hurricanes that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Every Georgia resident should prepare for hurricanes, plan to evacuate, and stay informed in the unfortunate event of a hurricane hitting our area. We must guard ourselves against complacency through preparation.

Please read the Hurricane Guide to learn more about how you can be safe and be prepared this hurricane season.
