Being a coastal community in South Florida, the City of Boca is vulnerable to tropical storms and hurricanes. One of nature’s most powerful forces, bringing destructive winds, tornadoes, and floods from torrential rains and ocean storm surges. In recent years, advances in how we predict and track these storms have improved preparedness and saved lives, but people living in hurricane-prone areas still must be prepared.
*Pick up your FREE hurricane magnet at City Hall, community centers or one of our libraries.
