Hurricane Awareness Week – Determine Your Risk

satviewSunday, May 15

This is Hurricane Awareness week and this year promises to be active as we enter a strong La Nina and have very warm subtropical Atlantic surface temperatures. 


Find out today what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live, and then start preparing now for how to handle them. Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem.

Their impacts can be felt hundreds of miles inland. It’s easy to forget what a hurricane is capable of doing. The U.S. has not been directly impacted by a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) in more than a decade.

Many people are suffering from hurricane amnesia in the forms of complacency, denial and inexperience.

This remarkable hurricane streak is going to end, and we have to be ready for it to happen this season.

We will be giving you important information not only about preparedness, but outlooks on what we are beginning to see this season.
