If you are unable to evacuate before the hurricane hits, stay inside. Don't be fooled by the eye of the hurricane and its temporary period of calm weather conditions. The length of time within the eye varies from several minutes to a couple of hours, depending on the size of the storm. Remember, the larger and more intense the hurricane, the larger the eye. Stay away from windows and glass doors. You could be struck by flying debris. Continue to listen to your radio for hurricane updates and emergency information.
