Hurricane Irene Nears the U.S. Coast: Are You Ready?

As the first major hurricane of the 2011 hurricane season approaches the U.S. coast, it's more important than ever to ensure that your family or business is prepared.

As Hurricane Irene nears the Florida coast, present projections show there is some possibility our region may be impacted. Check out Ready.gov and PrepareDE.org's preparation guides for this natural disaster. It is essential that families and businesses prepare themselves prior to a storm's impact, as supplies, communications, and routes of transportation may be limited. The NOAA has issued a Hurricane Safety flyer with safety tips for before, during, and after a storm.

For up to date tracking of Hurricane Irene and future hurricanes, the National Hurricane Center maintains an up-to-date website of named storms.
