Hurricane Center Director: "If it can Rain, it can Flood."

With uncertainty looming ahead of this year’s Hurricane Season, here's a very predictable reminder from National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb:

“You don’t want to be stuck somewhere without critical supplies, and anybody can find themselves in that situation after a hurricane goes through", Knabb said. "You have to be ready to fend for yourself for days on end. With critical supplies like water, non-perishable food, medicines, and back-up power for your very important electronic devices.”Weather service and emergency management officials from across the state encourage you to use the last 13 days before the season starts to get #HurricaneStrong. A new website detailing the challenge launched Monday at HurricaneStrong.org.
