Reminder: Hurricane Season is Still HereHurricane season starts on June 1st and runs through the end of November. In a quiet season it is easy to forget how potentially devastating a hurricane can be. Hurricanes are dangerous and destructive. Known also as cyclones and typhoons in other parts of the world, hurricanes cause high winds, flooding, heavy rain, and storm surges (high tidal waves). Even if there’s no risk of a hurricane right now, it’s important to be safe and plan ahead.

Hurricane Joaquin became the 2015 Atlantic season's third hurricane. The storm has developed and there is a possibility of U.S. East Coast landfall. Preparations for this storm should start immediately. There are tips on how to stock up on supplies and plan for emergencies from CDC.
