The 2019 Hurricane Season will officially kicked off June 1, 2019. The current prediction is that 2019 will have 75% of the average season, whereas the 2018 season had 120% of the average season. Hopefully this year we will be luck and have little hurricane activity.
However, with this said, it is always a good idea to be prepared for Hurricane season. Below are some tips to help you be ready if one comes your way.
- Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed.
- You should have a minimum of 3 days’ supply of non-perishable easy to prepare foods
