Hurricane Season: What You Don’t Know Could Save You

Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1st and runs until November 30th. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), The Weather Company, and Colorado State University, a range of 12 to 17 total named storms are predicted for the 2023 hurricane season; 5 to 9 of which could become hurricanes, including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5). As noted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following actions should be taken to prepare for a hurricane:

  • Clean your yard: Make sure there isn’t anything that could blow around during the storm and damage your home. Move bikes, lawn furniture, grills, propane tanks, and building material inside or under shelter.
  • Cover up windows and doors: Use storm shutters or nail pieces of plywood to the outside window frames to protect your windows.
  • Be ready to turn off your power: If you see flooding, downed power lines, or must leave your home, switch your power off.
  • Water Supply: Fill clean water containers with drinking water.
  • Food Supply: Have non-perishable food on hand.
  • Electronics: Have flashlights and extra batteries available.
  • Safety Check: Check your carbon monoxide detector’s battery.
