Hurricane Irma Guide

Hurricane Irma is barreling across the Atlantic and headed toward Miami. We’ve created this guide to help you prepare for the storm and understand the risks.

We’ll be answering your questions as much as possible before, during and after the storm, so be sure to ask them on Facebook and Twitter. If you have updates to share, we’ll gladly take those too and share them with The New Tropic community.

We’ve also created a Twitter list of official accounts for you to follow during the storm.

And, we recommend you sign up for Miami-Dade County emergency alerts, if you haven’t yet.

Please stay safe out there, and let us know how we can help.
