Hurricane Prepardness Week set for May 23 - May 29th. Are you ready?

The National Hurricane Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ([NOAA]) is declaring May 23 through 29, 2010 as Hurricane Preparedness Week. The purpose of the week is to stress how important awareness and preparation can be in preventing loss of life and property damage from a hurricane.

Awareness involves knowing about the various hurricane hazards, including storm surge, high winds, tornadoes, and flooding. The best preparedness is to have a plan of action to protect against each of the hazards. A family plan should include knowing the risks in their area, locating safe areas in the home or evacuation centers, setting a contact location where family members can meet, making plans for pets, storing nonperishable food and other emergency items, and using a NOAA radio.

The Hurricane Preparedness Week website is at: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/HAW2/english/intro.shtml. The site contains a wealth of information about the history, present, and future of hurricanes.
