Each year as summer begins the start of hurricane season looms like an ominous dark cloud. Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th and hurricane season 2017 is here. If you have not already prepared, now is the time to stock up on hurricane supplies and brush up on your hurricane knowledge. There are many great resources like the recent article in The Orlando Sentinel regarding storm preparedness. Hurricanes and tropical systems are not predictable, we are not able to accurately predict the number or strength of storms we will have in a season. Fortunately, today’s technology allows us to know when a tropical system forms providing advanced notice to coastal residents. This notice is critical, allowing time to evacuate and take precautions to protect homes and businesses. You should know your evacuation routes ahead of time and when evacuation orders are issued it is very important to follow those recommendations. Once a storm begins making land fall it is too late to evacuate and the emergency services that we depend will be unable to respond. It is important to know the strengths, stages and phrases associated with an approaching storm.

When you look back at the top ten worst hurricanes it truly highlights the importance of being informed, prepared and evacuating when ordered. After a storm has impacted an area, reputable restoration companies are quickly booked to capacity. This results in long waits for service or being forced to contract an out of state company who will be gone once things settle down. It is a good idea to be proactive and contact a restoration professional ahead of an approaching storm, this will ensure you have a reputable local company available to perform needed emergency services and repairs. You should have plans and supplies to provide for your family for a minimum of three days. In many cases organizations like FEMA and the Red Cross cannot gain access and begin assisting for several days.
