Each year, the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, sponsors “Hurricane Preparedness Week”. Their interactive website, listed below, is a valuable resource for anyone living within 250 miles of the Atlantic or Gulf Coasts of the US. This year, Hurricane Preparedness Week is from May 26 to June 01. Those persons who have not yet made preparations for Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season 2013 are urged to go to the NHC Preparedness website and go through the reminders and suggestions concerning your family’s safety.
Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season runs from June 01 to November 30 in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico region. Our Tropical Storm Research Center headquartered in Gulf Shores, Alabama, will post unofficial updates and advisories here once a storm is named by the NHC office in Miami. With conditions being favorable for a more active season than normal, we are asking that everyone with interests along the southern and east coasts of the US, visit the site linked below to get ready for what could potentially affect hundreds of thousands of citizens this year. Take care and be safe.
