Storms, Floods, Hurricanes no match for us!
Hurricane season is officially underway. For the Atlantic, the season begins June 1st through November 30th. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season began in mid-May and also ends November 30th. Hurricanes can be life threatening, and can cause some serious property damage, and threatening hazardous situations such as flooding, storm surge, high winds and tornadoes - even here in our home town of Worcester!
Preparation is the best protection in fighting against the dangers of a hurricane. plan and escape route, take inventory of your property and take steps to protect your home or business, for instance if you live on a flat level property use sand bags to keep water from traveling inside your property. Also you can protect your windows with plywood boards, or storm shutters.
