Hurricane Season Starts Wednesday, June 1st... Are You Ready?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Acadiana

For those of us living near the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, June 1st marks the beginning of the hurricane season.

Hurricane season begins June 1st. Are you prepared?

A few days ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its predictions for 2011.

12 to 18 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which: 

6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including: 

3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher)

One thing they can't predict is the trajectory these hurricanes will take and the areas they will affect.

The truth is, hurricanes can be, and often are, destructive in many ways, including with high winds, tornadoes, flooding, and storm surges for those living near the coasts.

Do you have a plan?

We are need to be prepared and have a plan ahead of time. In addition, homeowners should be aware of their home's weaknesses and how it might be affected by high winds and flooding. While we all need to have a family plan, homeowners also need a plan to secure their home.

The NOAA website is filled with information and tips on how to prepare for hurricanes. Unless you want to be scrambling to secure your home and your family once you know a hurricane is heading your way, now is the time to evaluate your emergency preparedness and establish a plan.

Chantal, thanks for the reminder.  I don't know if I'm ever ready for Hurricane season.  I just pray that it doesn't mirror the Tornado season we are having.

Great reminder for the season. Would think after all the issues with devastaing hurricanes like Katrina, Rita, Andrew, etc., we would ALWAYS BE PREPARED. But alas, NO!
