Are You Preparing For Hurricane Season?

If you live in an Atlantic coastal area, chances are your mind's on hurricane season. Today marks the official start of hurricane season, which runs from today through November. Gerry Bell, lead hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, says residents should "[p]repare for each and every season regardless of the seasonal outlook. Even a near- or below-normal season can produce landfalling hurricanes, and it only takes one landfalling storm to make it a bad season."

Residents can protect their homes and families by contacting companies such as Family Shutters. In this shot, an employee of Family Shutters places Plexiglas hurricane panels on a home to help protect it from high winds in Miami.
