City of Homestead Emergency Management Staff Monitoring Hurricane Dorian

State of Emergency Hurricane Dorian Update

The City of Homestead declared a State of Emergency Friday, August 30, 2019 in response to Hurricane Dorian – a major Category 3 storm approaching Florida. By declaring a state of emergency, the City is ensuring ample time, resources, and flexibility to get prepared for this dangerous storm and making sure safety and operations are not hindered or delayed.  Emergency Management Staff is currently monitoring the progress of Hurricane Dorian. Based on the latest information from the National Weather Service, all city departments and personnel are engaged in basic preparation activities.

“In Homestead, we know it’s always better to prepare for the worst and hope for the best than to not be prepared,” said City of Homestead Emergency Manager Stephen Taylor.  “While the exact path of Dorian is not absolutely known at this time, this state of emergency allows us to act quickly in the best interest of our residents without the burden of bureaucracy.”

At this time there are no planned evacuations or shelter activations. Residents can find information on recommended storm preparations, emergency kit contents, and emergency contact information online at www.cityofhomestead.com/preparedness
