Forecasters at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service, are predicting above-average hurricane activity this year. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.
“Early preparation and understanding your risk is key to being hurricane resilient and climate-ready,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo. “As we reflect on another potentially busy hurricane season, past storms — such as Superstorm Sandy, which devastated the New York metro area ten years ago — remind us that the impact of one storm can be felt for years.”
If a hurricane hits and power is interrupted, residents should be prepared to shelter at home. At a minimum everyone should have on hand 3 days of food, 7 days of medications, 3 gallons of drinking water per person, led flashlights, and a battery powered AM radio.
