MIAMI -

Damage caused by your boat during a hurricane is your responsibility, so have a plan and to protect your boat.

Bridges are locked down BEFORE an evacuation is ordered -- generally 24 hours before a storm hits, so you need to secure your boat and move it to a safe harbor long before the warning and evacuation.
