    If you have your heart set on enjoying the hot summer sun like most visitors to the island, don't worry! Assateague only gets affected by a hurricane on average a little less than once every three years and most of these are not direct hits.

    The great staff of both Assateague Island National Seashore and Assateague Island State Park do a wonderful job of watching out for their guests. They will notify you well in advance of any storm activity and will not hesitate to evacuate if needed.

    It is a good idea to check out the extended weather forecast (and keep checking it) at least two weeks in advance of your planned vacation.

    Tropical storm systems are detected in their beginning stages and tend to move slowly along a projected path. There's really no need to be surprised by one of these monsters!
