It Only Takes One: FEMA and NOAA Encourage Preparedness for the 2016 Hurricane Season

It only takes one hurricane to change your life and your community. Hurricanes not only affect coastal communities, but also can have significant impacts hundreds of miles inland. As Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac remind us, it is not just major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher) that we need to worry about. All hurricanes could potentially cause significant damage.

May 15 through 21 is Hurricane Preparedness Week in preparation for the Atlantic hurricane season beginning on June 1.

FEMA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are continuing their partnership to increase public awareness of the hazards posed by hurricanes and the steps we can all take to be better prepared.
