National Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 1-7 and now is the time to get ready for hurricane season. Today you can determine your personal hurricane risk, find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone, and review/update insurance policies.

You can also make a list of items to replenish hurricane emergency supplies and start thinking about how you will prepare your home for the coming hurricane season.

If you live in hurricane-prone areas, you are encouraged to complete these simple preparations before hurricane season begins on June 1.

Check out the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s hurricane preparedness page to get tips on how to be ready for hurricanes.
