PINE BELT (WDAM) -

We are now in the heart of hurricane season. A majority of our strongest hurricanes occur between August and October and we need to make sure we are prepared.

In the event a storm disrupts our lives, be sure you have a plan in place and a hurricane kit prepared. We are extremely dependent on technology, and storms can interrupt that along with communication.  The loss of electricity or even the ability to cook or buy food and water or buy gas for your car can be a factor as well.   We encourage everyone to have essential supplies, be aware of impending severe weather, and discuss an emergency plan with your family.

We have tips on planning ahead posted on our website.

Consider this…. Plan now, in the event a storm approaches, so you can keep your family safe.
