Emergency Management in Florida

Hurricane Season 2018 …Are You Prepared? – According to forecasting from top meteorologists, this year’s hurricane season (beginning on June 1 and ending November 30) is shaping up to be another big one with a greater than 60 percent chance of a major hurricane hitting the U.S. coastline. Researchers at Colorado State University estimate that seven hurricanes and 14 named storms will form during the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, with the intensity of the season slightly above the average from recent decades (TIME Magazine, April 2018).

An above-average hurricane season this year would follow devastation wrecked by a series of 12 named storms in 2017, including Hurricane Irma that impacted Central and South Florida. 

Every hurricane season should be treated seriously, and taking simple precautions can help everyone stay safe in case of a natural disaster.
