Moody announced the state’s new hurricane preparedness guide at the City of Miami Police Department.
“We need you to help us by you being prepared for this hurricane season,” said Chief Art Acevedo, who lived through Hurricane Harvey while working as Houston’s Police Chief. “It’s not a matter of if, but when.”

“Tips, contacts, resources, suggested supplies, how to find an evacuation route, and how to protect themselves from fraud and scams, should a storm hit,” said Moody.
