Hurricane Season Information

Picture of Fairfax County and Hurricane Flags
The aftermath of an unexpected tornado, flood or power outage can pose a serious health risk for you and your family. It's best to prepare for a hurricane or tornado before it strikes. Once a disaster hits, you may not have the time or the ability to get supplies

Hurricane season typically runs June 1 through November 30. Tornadoes can occur any time of the year. Most of the tornadoes that hit Virginia occur in August and September and are associated with the remnants of hurricanes. Tornadoes often strike with little or no advance warning.
