Preparing for the 2019 Hurricane Season
Living in Florida offers many benefits and advantages, but be sure to thoroughly prepare for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season starting June 1. After assessing damages done from hurricanes in the past few years, Floridians are encouraged to have at least 7 days of supplies. These supplies include food, water, medicine, batteries, etc. Each family and business is advised to be adequately stocked and prepared to face this hurricane season.
During the past three years, four hurricanes have made landfall in Florida, including Hurricane Michael, the first hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. as a Category 5 since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. If you are unsure of what to do when disaster strikes, make a plan today. To get you and your family started on planning visit FloridaDisaster.org/GetAPlan.
