2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Begins

Hurricane Season is a Reminder to Prepare

MASHPEE – June 1st marked the official start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season which runs through November 30th. While the majority of tropical storms and hurricanes that have impacted New England occurred during the months of August and September, now is the time to begin preparing yourself, your family, your home, and your business. Throughout hurricane season, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Emergency Management Department (MWTEMD) will share preparedness information to help our tribal community residents be aware of, and prepare for, the impacts of tropical storms and hurricanes.


Hurricane Preparation and Evacuation Guidelines

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is located in a coastal community of eastern, MA and is susceptible to coastal flooding and potential evacuations. Contact your emergency management officials to learn about the risks of coastal flooding in your community and neighborhood.
