Atlantic Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30 but we're more likely to experience hurricanes or tropical storms in late August and throughout the month of September.
Just one damaging storm can make this a bad year. Don't wait until a storm is on its way; make sure you have your emergency preparedness plan in place.
Understand the risks to your property and take action now to prepare.
