    • Description:
      The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is making detailed practical information on hurricane preparedness, response, and recovery available to affected communities, people displaced by the storms, and responders. There are many potential public health and safety concerns after hurricane impact. Many injuries and illnesses from hurricanes and floods occur during the response and recovery phases. Some common hazards include vehicle- and nonvehicle-related drowning, carbon monoxide poisoning (such as from gasoline-powered engines, including generators and clean-up equipment), electrocution, falls, cuts, and exposure to mold and industrial and household chemicals.
