Hurricane season will be here before we know it. The official start date is June 1 and continues through November 30. The 2017 season featured 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes and 6 major hurricanes – one of the most active hurricane seasons to date. The forecast for 2018 is predicting a very active hurricane season as well. As it is Hurricane Preparedness Week, it’s a great time to review best practices on preparing before a potential disaster strikes.
