We want our Clear Lake Shores residents to start planning ahead and preparing for this year's hurricane season. As we recognize National Hurricane Preparedness Week, start planning and securing all the necessary supplies and information needed in case of a potential disaster.

Prepare an Evacuation Plan
Create a detailed evacuation plan that includes a secure location to go to and the safest route to get there. Remember to consider the type of emergency shelter pets may need when planning.
