We finally got through winter but more terrible weather may be just ahead.

June 1st is the start of hurricane season.

Now is the time to get ready before a storm threatens our community.

As we know firsthand from Hurricane Sandy, being prepared to act quickly can be essential for survival. Even though severe weather was predicted before the hurricane hit, many said they did not have a plan and were caught unprepared.  After all, when was the last time a hurricane hit New York hard?

But now, post Sandy, we’ve learned that hurricanes happen here.

So do you know what to do if a hurricane watch is ordered?

Do you know how to evacuate if local officials call for an evacuation?

Don’t wait until a storm threatens to find out.  Get your family disaster plan together.  Find out if you’re in an evacuation zone and have an escape route planned.

Hurricane season can be unpredictable but you can take control by getting your plan ready today.

Check out these video tips from USWeather.gov and start preparing your family’s disaster plan now.
