Residents living in the Caribbean and southeastern United States are all too familiar with the destructive power a hurricane can bring. Long time residents of these locations have learned the most efficient methods for preparing for the effects of the storm before and after it passes. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1-November 30, and in that time period the most active time is during the end of August and into the month of September. One of the most important things to do to be prepared during this time is to closely monitor the weather forecasts and keep oneself constantly informed. Buildings in these hurricane zones are built to high standards that allow them to withstand potential winds over 150mph. Often times the wisest option when a storm will be affecting your area is to heed the warnings of government, and evacuate to a safer location.
Living in what many people consider to be paradise, does come with its risks. Proper preparedness is the key to minimizing loss of life and property.
