Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem.  Their impacts can be
felt hundreds of miles inland.

It`s easy to forget what a hurricane is capable of doing.  The U.S.
has not been directly impacted by a major hurricane (Category 3 or

However, hurricanes such as Ike, Sandy and Isaac reminded us that
significant impacts can occur without it being a major hurricane.
Many people are suffering from hurricane amnesia in the forms of
complacency, denial and inexperience.  This remarkable hurricane
streak is going to end, and we have to be ready for it to happen
this season.

The next statement will focus on Developing an Evacuation Plan.
