With Hurricane Florence approaching the U.S. East Coast, BOMA International is keeping in close contact with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to gather any information that may be helpful to our members.
Below is a list of resources and websites; we will update this list as more information becomes available:
Also consider downloading the FEMA smartphone app. The app includes National Weather Service alerts; safety tips on how to stay safe before, during and after the storm; a preparation checklist; and maps of disaster resources, such as shelters and disaster recovery centers. You also can locate an open emergency shelter or open disaster recovery center in your area by texting SHELTER and your ZIP Code to 43362 (4FEMA).
Additionally, FEMA operates regional National Business Emergency Operations Centers to provide disaster assistance. An online dashboard has been activated for the Atlantic region and can be a useful resource to ask questions and find answers. Registration is not required; you can enter this site as a guest.
