2010 NORTH ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON
The Atlantic Hurricane Season officially runs from June 1st through November 30th, with the Eastern Pacific Season having begun on May 15th. The 2010 Atlantic season has been fairly quiet so far with only five named storms while the Eastern Pacific has already had six. Now through mid-September is a prime time for tropical system development and a good time to stay informed on what's happening in the tropics.
A good resource for keeping track of the tropics is the National Weather Service's National Hurricane Center Web site, which gives you up to the minute storm information, marine forecasts, information on how to prepare for a hurricane or tropical storm as well as a history of hurricanes. You can connect to the page visiting the following web site: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/index.shtml
Stay informed, stay safe!

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK
History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster. This year Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 20-26, 2007.
The goal of this Hurricane Preparedness Web site is to inform the public about the hurricane hazards and provide knowledge which can be used to take ACTION. This information can be used to save lives at work, home, while on the road, or on the water.
Join NOAA all week long as they examine the following topics:
Sunday: Hurricane History
Monday - Wednesday: Hurricane Hazards
Thursday: The Hurricane Forecast Process
Friday: What can you do to prepare!
Saturday: What actions you can take
