During a Storm

As the tropical storm or hurricane makes landfall, you should:

  • Go into your “safe room” or area
  • Constantly monitor radio, TV, NOAA Weather Radio, or Sumter County’s website for official bulletins of the storm’s progress
  • Wait until the winds have subsided completely BEFORE you go outside and survey the damage
  • Only call 9-1-1 if it is a life threatening emergency

ð     Any general inquiries should go to the Citizens’ Information Center at (352) 569-3190
