If you haven’t signed up for CodeRED, the emergency alert system, it’s not too late to do so on the City or County’s web sites.
Start preparing early … just in case. Suggestions on emergency kits, possible evacuation routes, what to pack, family communications plans and more are available on the City’s web site using the keyword Hurricane Information in the Search bar OR clicking on the About tab on the top of the page.
The City of Rockport encourages its citizens to be safe when hurricane conditions threaten our area. Please review the drop-down tabs at left and familiarize yourself with this potentially life-saving information.
In the case of a possible tropical storm or hurricane, keep yourself informed through the broadcast media or the National Hurricane Center.
