Prepare Now For ‘Above Average’ Hurricane Season

A few simple steps can help you protect your home and family from serious storms.

(NAPSI)—The 2022 hurricane season is underway, with the Colorado State University (CSU) Tropical Meteorology Project Team forecasting an above-average storm season for the Atlantic basin. Emergency preparation experts say now is the time to get ready, especially as CSU places the probability of a major hurricane making landfall along U.S. coastlines at 71 percent.

When a hurricane hits, food, water and other critical supplies can run short and this year the situation could be even worse due to ongoing supply chain issues. What’s more, severe storms will negatively impact an aging electrical grid that is overdue for updating, causing the power to go out for days—if not weeks. In short order, residents may find themselves in dire need for supplies and backup power.
