Hurricane Preparedness Week: May 2-9

In preparation for Hurricane Season starting June 1 and running through November 30, the National Weather Service hosts the annual Hurricane Preparedness Week – an awareness and preparedness outreach campaign.

In the Central Shenandoah Region, many of the most devastating floods have come from tropical hurricane systems. To help stay prepared: determine your risk, develop an evacuation plan, assemble disaster supplies, get a property insurance check-up, strengthen your home, help your neighbor get prepared, and complete a written plan. It only takes one storm to change your life and your community.
