Do You Have a Plan in Place for Hurricane Season?
According to the latest forecasts by Colorado State University, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration and The Weather Company, the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to be more active than historical averages. There are 14 expected named storms, with six being anticipated hurricanes, two of those being major. Due to the uncertainty of climate models, comparable statistics were reviewed and an above normal season has been predicted. What can you do?
While there is no strong correlation between the number of storms expected and actual landfall, one or more of the forecasted storms could hit the U.S. No matter what, residents along the coastal portion of our country should prepare.
Below is a list of some ways you can help your family get ready for a storm in advance:
Make a hurricane kit
Look over your insurance policy
Install storm shutters
Remove yard debris
Trim dead tree branches
Put away patio furniture
Back up computer records
Gather important papers
Gill gas tanks
Get cash and medicine
Prepare your pet
Stay safe out there!
