Hurricane Preparedness for South Central Region

Posted by on August 25th, 2017 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness, General, NLM Resources


Although the GMR is more likely to face a tornado or a blizzard, our sister region, South Central (SCR), is preparing for the onslaught of Hurricane Harvey. NLM Disaster Information Research Center (DIMRC) offers the following information and resources:

Hurricane Harvey is expected to be Category 3 when it hits land off the Gulf of Mexico, bringing heavy rain and flooding to the Texas and Louisiana coast. To help you prepare and respond with authoritative health information, below are links to our information guides for Hurricanes and Floods. You can embed the content from both of these pages on your own website, by accessing the Health and Human Services (HHS) Content Syndication Storefront. When we update any of these pages, your pages will be automatically updated as well.
