Hurricane Preparedness Week for 2011 will be held May 22nd through May 28th.
If you live in or near a Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic coastal area of the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, Hispaniola or the Central American countries, please visit the NOAA Website linked below for important Hurricane preparedness information. New residents in coastal areas should pay particular attention the preparedness recommendations and start planning for any eventuality now, before the season starts. For persons who have lived in hurricane prone areas for some time, please review the preparedness recommendations so everything is in order. There are already indications that the 2011 season will be somewhat active and we are already seeing disturbances in the Atlantic and Caribbean that usually do not occur until late May or early June.
Our Tropical Weather System Studies Group will start posting Tropical Weather System advisories as they develop. Until then, thank you… take care and be safe.
