NATIONAL HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK CONTINUES TODAY
Even though you may live in the Mid-South, well away from the East , Gulf or Florida coastal areas, it is important to know about hurricanes and the dangers they can cause. This week aims to teach on a day-by-day basis the background of our planet’s most extreme storms. If you must travel for business or pleasure, this is a good way to know what to expect – and how to react – before a hurricane is ever developed in ocean waters.
