|Critical questions - just how prepared are you for a hurricane?|
You can’t live in Florida without being aware of the potential for hurricanes and tropical storms. Many recall Hurricane Andrew that hit in 1992 or the five hurricanes which kept everyone in a constant state of worry during the 2005 season.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1-November 30, and the Colorado State University’s Atlantic Basin forecast is for 18 named storms and 9 hurricanes, of which four are expected to be a Category 3 or higher.
To help facilities take a critical look at their preparedness level, FHCA has offered a list of questions for careful consideration. Remember, it only takes one storm in your area to make it an “active season” for you.
