We are just a few days into the 2012 hurricane season and already we've had two tropical storms, Alberto and Beryl. They brought gusty winds, high tides and much needed rain to parts of the Southeast coast. Even with such an early start to the tropical season, forecasters say they believe the 2012 season will be about average with 12 tropical storms and six hurricanes. But as anyone who lived through Katrina can tell you, it only takes one hit to turn your life upside down.
Our best advice is to be prepared. Make sure you have an evacuation plan, especially if you live in a low lying area. And whether you evacuate or seek shelter in your home, make sure you have all the provisions you might need to live for three days without any assistance.
You can find a list of needed hurricane supplies under the hurricane link of the weather page on this web site.
Also think about our elderly. If you know of someone who lives alone make sure they have a plan on what they will do if a storm should approach.
Now is also the time to think about your insurance needs. Don't wait until the last second and try to buy flood insurance because it may be too late.
The past several years few storms have entered the Gulf, we hope that is the case again this year. Having a well thought out hurricane plan will ease some of the stress if a storm does come our way this year.
