Being Prepared During Hurricane Season
Posted: Ashley Cornner-Patel
Earlier this week, Hurricane Laura threatened to potentially hit the Houston area. As Laura made it’s way across the Gulf of Mexico, it strengthened rapidly into a major Category 4 hurricane and it’s track shifted further East. This resulted in Laura making landfall in Cameron, Louisiana, as the fifth strongest hurricane ever to hit the continental United States. Based on the catastrophic damage caused to our neighbors who lived in it’s path, it’s safe to say the Houston area “dodged a bullet” this time. However, we are still approaching the peak (September 10th) of what has been a very active hurricane season, thus, it’s very important not to let your guard down. We wanted to share a comprehensive article by Jason Metz of Forbes on how to become and remain prepared during hurricane season. It contains many helpful tips to keep in mind.
