Hurricane season officially kicked off May 15 in the Pacific and, right on cue, the waters are churning and giving storm trackers reason to sit up and take notice. No significant tropical weather has occurred, but now is the time to prepare before it does.
The U.S. Coast Guard Compass has an informative article on hurricane-preparedness with a link to Ready.gov, a FEMA site, that contains more advice on what to do before, during and after a hurricane. Another excellent resource is NOAA’s National Weather Service, where you can find information on Hurricane Preparedness Week, which runs May 27 through June 2. Look there for daily announcements throughout that week on subjects beginning with hurricane basics and ending with how to take action.
