Watches, Warnings & Local Communication


Palm Beach County has a community notification system to alert its cities and towns of hurricanes and floods. This system uses TV Channels 5, 12, 25, 29 (Comcast channels 03, 09, 10 and 11) and all radio stations. During major storms, as conditions permit, the town is patrolled by police officers, stormwater, public works, water utilities and other staff to identify safety hazards and areas of flooding. In the event winds reach 45 mph, public safety personnel (including police and fire rescue) will not patrol. If you need assistance, always call 911 for emergencies, and for non-emergency assistance from police or fire rescue, call (561) 799-4445.

Special Notice to Boaters


Draw bridges over our local waterways will typically be locked in a down position when a hurricane watch is issued. The town recommends that any boat owners who require draw bridges to be raised to move underneath need to move their boats to other locations immediately. View more information on preparing your boat.
