Preparedness is Key for Hurricane Season

There could be more and stronger storms this season. That’s according to Rockland’s county executive, who reminds us hurricane season could still do some damage in our area. Ed Day says “preparedness” is key…

Seasonal forecasters with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center have increased the likelihood of an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season to 45%, up from 30% from the outlook issued in May. Hurricane season runs through November 30th. The number of predicted storms is also greater with NOAA now expecting an increase in powerful storms that could become hurricanes, which pack winds of 111 miles-per-hour or more.
