...Continuing Hurricane Preparedness Week...

...Today`s topic is Determining Your Risk...

Hurricanes are among nature`s most powerful and destructive phenomena.
On average, twelve tropical storms, six of which become hurricanes
form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico during
the hurricane season which occurs from June 1st through November 30th
each year.

Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem. Their impacts can be felt
hundreds of miles inland, and significant impacts can occur without
it being a major hurricane. For example, Tropical Storms can pose
risks to inland areas such as flooding due to heavy rainfall,
tornadoes and high winds. This week during Hurricane Preparedness
Week, is your time to determine your risks and prepare for a
potential land-falling tropical storm or hurricane.
