Handy Internet Links for Hurricane Season

Hurricane Season runs from June 1 to Nov 30. Here are some useful links to help you prepare before the storm and get crucial information during and after a storm. Obviously, during the storm your power could go out, so make sure you have an alternate method to charge your smart phone or tablet device so that you can use it to stay informed. It’s also a good idea to have a battery-powered radio on hand.
