Hurricane Michael Takes Aim at 300-Mile Gulf Coast
Hurricane Michael is threatening more than 300 miles of the Gulf Coast, prompting emergency declarations in more than 100 counties from Mobile, Alabama through the Florida Panhandle and into the state's Big Bend region. Residents are encourage to make preparations ahead of potential landfall. It is impossible for us to know the extent to which our Network Members will be impacted by this hurricane.

NOTE for DOCLINE Members: If your library will be closed due to the hurricane, please set your library “out of office” to temporarily deactivate lending in DOCLINE. If your library has never set your “out of office” before, please visit the NNLM DOCLINE website to learn how. Doing so will prevent requests from routing to your library during times of extended absence or special circumstances.
We encourage you to visit the following pages from the NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC). You can embed the content from both of these pages on your own Website by accessing the Health and Human Services (HHS) Content Syndication Storefront. When we update any of these pages, your pages will be automatically updated as well.

Although we are not sure what the full impact of this hurricane will have in our region, please reach out to the NNLM SEA and NDCO if we can be of assistance. We will continue to update this article with more information as the hurricane progresses to the gulf coast. Please keep us up-to-date regarding the status of your library/institution but more importantly let us know you are safe and well.
