It’s Hurricane Preparedness Week

It’s Hurricane Preparedness Week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - As we find ourselves just weeks away from the start of hurricane season, city and state leaders are working to fix problems with water drainage in the city, but while many of those questions are still unanswered, it's important to have a plan of your own.

The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is encouraging families to have a plan ready now for what looks to be another busy hurricane season.

Some ways include making sure you have supplies and tools or generators for if the power goes out.

It’s also important to check the integrity of trees that sit on our near your property.

Weather experts are predicting about 12 to 14 tropical storms this year that may come in contact with the U.S. and between 2 and 4 of those could have the potential to become major hurricanes.

Officials say it’s important to know what to do and where to go if a mandatory evacuation is ever ordered and to be sure and go over that plan with your loved ones.
