Tips for hurricane preparedness

The tropics are starting to heat up with the development of Tropical Depression 6, which is expected to become TS Fiona within a few days.  It won’t hit the Southeast in all probability, but the next storm might come a lot closer.  Here are two web sites with helpful information on preparing for a tropical storm or hurricane before it occurs.  Remember, the rainfall may cause as much damage as the wind, especially if the storm is slow-moving.  If you are near the coast, storm surge is also something to keep in mind.
