Hurricane Season
Hurricane season begins June 1st.  For Floridians, preparing for hurricane season becomes a way of life, and Jupiter residents should always err on the side of caution by anticipating an active hurricane season.  This includes making preparations for tropical depressions and storms, and hurricanes that may not directly hit our area, but may still impact our weather.  A storm that doesn’t make direct landfall can still cause local erosion, flooding, wind damage, and possible tornadoes.  

The Town hopes for the best and prepares for the worst, planning year-round to ensure the safety of residents and local resources. Residents and businesses are highly encouraged to do the same so we, as a community, are ready in the event of a storm.  

  • Active Alerts: During an active storm threat, the latest alerts and information will be posted above chronologically under 'current storm information.'

  • Visit our webpage on information on what to do Before, During & After a Storm.

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.

Bridge Info

Drawbridges 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 drawbridges to be raised to move underneath need to move their boats to other locations immediately.
