2023 Hurricane Outlook - Be Prepared

With the recent impacts to both coasts from Hurricane Hilary and Hurricane Idalia and now with Hurricane Lee predicted to become a major storm, it is very important to be aware and be prepared for any severe weather systems that may impact areas that we live in.

Forecasters are continuing to predict that there is an above-average probability that additional hurricanes will make landfall along the US coastline and in the Caribbean. Hurricane season typically runs from June through November, peaking in early to mid-September. It is important to remember that hurricanes can happen any time, any place, and that remnants of these storms could have impacts far inland away from the coast.

It only takes one storm to change your life and your community. Hurricanes, tropical storms, and storm surge are among the most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to tropical events, you need to be prepared.

Today is a good time to determine your personal risks, find out if you love in a hurricane evacuation zone, and review/update insurance policies. It is the perfect time to replenish your hurricane emergency supplies, review your emergency plans in the event of a storm, and to prepare your homes for any future storms.
