Hurricane Season Still Active
Hurricane Season began June 1, and thus far we’ve been very fortunate. But don’t go raiding your hurricane kit at the next family movie night because we aren’t in the clear just yet. Hurricane season runs through November 30, providing more than enough time for a storm or a few to brew. If you have not yet pulled together your annual hurricane plan, you should stop everything and do it now.
You don’t want to be caught unprepared, and thanks to Chatham Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) and the Hurricane Guide in your 2020 Landings Residential Directory (pages 57-61) you don’t have to be. You also can find the Hurricane Guide information on The Landings Association’s website (www.landings.org/resources > Emergency Planning).
CEMA’s website offers tips related to specific areas of hurricane preparedness, including developing an evacuation plan, assembling a disaster kit, and reviewing the County’s evacuation zones. Please note, The Landings falls in Evacuation Zone A (areas east of Truman Parkway and the Vernon River).
