Hurricane Season is now upon us! Make sure you have your emergency kit together. Keep in mind that freshwater flooding (rainfall) is the largest killer related to hurricanes, but if you live close to a body of water near the coast keep in mind that storm surge should also factor in your emergency plan. For a list of materials to include in your kit, go to: http://www.weather.gov/os/hurricane/resources/TropicalCyclones11.pdf
Remember, this season is expected to be above average with high probabilities of landfalls in the US Gulf Coast and East Coast.
