Please join the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Upton New York in observing National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Today`s topic covers completing your written hurricane plan. The time to prepare for a hurricane is before the season begins, when you have the time and are not under pressure. If you wait until a hurricane is on your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under duress and will make the wrong decisions. Take the time now to write down your hurricane plan. Know where you will ride out the storm and get your supplies now. You don`t want to be standing in long lines when a hurricane warning is issued. Those supplies that you need will probably be sold out by the time you reach the front of the line. Being prepared, before a hurricane threatens, makes you resilient to the hurricane impacts of wind and water. It will mean the difference between your being a hurricane victim and a hurricane survivor. Be prepared this hurricane season...and visit hurricanes.gov and ready.gov/hurricanes. $$
