Do you know the difference between a hurricane watch and a hurricane warning? 

What is a Hurricane Watch?
A hurricane watch is issued when there is a threat of hurricane conditions within 48 hours. 

What is a Hurricane Warning?
A hurricane warning is issued when hurricane conditions (winds of 74 miles per hour or greater, or dangerously high water and rough seas) are expected in 36 hours or less.

Stay tuned to local weather authorities and have a plan to stay safe in the event of a hurricane watch or warning.   

Websites such as nhc.noaa.gov are a great way to get reliable local and national information for hurricane preparedness. If your home or business has water damage from a hurricane or thunderstorm, give SERVPRO of Vero Beach a call 772-770-0501. We are ready and available to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
