The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1st through November 31st. Although the peak of the storm season is in September, a Tropical Storm Or Hurricane can can develop and make landfall at anytime. Remember that a hurricane will bring strong winds and flooding rains for several hours, but what most people don’t realize is that you’ll also need to be vigilant and prepared for unexpected danger of tornadoes at anytime during the storm event.
When a hurricane is forecasted to hit your area, it’s a good bet the power will be out for at least 3 – 7 days depending on how strong the storm happens to be. Also, although most food store and gas stations now have back-up generator power, there will most likely be a shortage of food, water, ice, gasoline for generator and vehicles and many other important supplies.
