National Hurricane Preparedness Week May 5-11

With the Atlantic already heating up and the first tropical wave seen moving near the Southeast, it is time to get serious about preparing for the next hurricane season. It starts officially on June 1, but we often see some activity before then, so now is the time! This coming week is National Hurricane Preparedness week, and the National Weather Service has a web site full of resources and information for you at https://www.weather.gov/wrn/hurricane-preparedness. Remember, even if the season is not very active, it only takes one!
