Everyone could use a break from disasters, but with early predictions of an above-average hurricane season, being prepared well in advance is the next best thing.
Atlantic Hurricane Season begins June 1 and experts are already predicting another above-average hurricane season this year. As a result, the National Hurricane Center will start alerting to tropical storms earlier this year, on May 15. Experts say you shouldn’t wait until you’re in “the cone” of a storm threat to shore up your emergency supplies. From critical basics like flashlights, tie-downs and batteries to properly using a generator, and personal matters like extra baby or pet food and prescriptions, now is the time to get started on your preparedness checklist.
