National Hurricane Preparedness Week 2023.

Be ready for hurricane season. Take action TODAY to be better prepared for when the worst happens. Understand your risk from hurricanes, and begin pre-season preparations now. Make sure you understand how to interpret forecasts and alerts, and know what to do before, during, and after a storm. If you live in hurricane-prone areas, you are encouraged to prepare before hurricane season begins on June 1.

Prepare Before Hurricane Season. It’s a good time to review your plan.

Are you a coastal resident? Do you live in a flood-prone area? Best to know your surroundings and any hazards that may show up during a tropical event.

Assemble your supply kit. Food, water, batteries, chargers, radios, prescription drugs and cash on hand.

Consider reviewing your home insurance plan, is it adequate? Also, document your possessions and valuables.

Create a communication plan and a written list of contacts.

Lastly, the time is right to fortify your home. Address roof issues, make sure windows and doors are properly sealed. A quick trip to a home improvement store can accomplish these tasks all while sticking to a reasonable budget.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs June 1 through November 30, 2023.
