Happy Labor Day !
Last Friday, Hurricane Earl landed in North Carolina and caused minimal damage . With Tropical Storms Fiona and Gaston directly behind Earl and a tropical storm in the Eastern Pacific , it seems to me we are entering the height of hurricane season. Since the season does not end until November, it's good to be prepared in case a tropical storm or hurricane heads your way.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has many resources on how to mitigate damages and prepare for hurricanes . They also have guides on what you should do during an evacuation and after a hurricane . If you are like me, you probably watch the local news to get your hurricane updates, but remember you can get information from the original source.
The National Weather Service website frequently updates information on hurricanes. You should also keep an eye on government social media . Last week, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) flew a DC-8 through Hurricane Earl and described what it was like on Twitter .
Are you prepared for hurricanes and tropical storms?
