The amount of Hurricane Joaquin prep information hitting you is almost as dense as the raindrops will be if you wind up standing in it. On the Ocean County Health Department web page, you can find a comprehensive guide to resources and tips to safeguard yourself and your loved ones.

The resource page contains 24 links to information about preparing for severe weather, what to do if you shelter in place or if evacuation is imminent, and tending to the aftermath, as well as a handy link to the Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group for extensive assistance.

OCHD staffers will send updates throughout the storm on their Facebook page and through their Twitter account.
