Hurricanes are large, spiralling tropical storms that can have wind speeds that are at least 74 mph hour and can get over 160 mph. They can form in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf Coast, Caribbean Sea and eastern Pacific Ocean from now until November 30 and can cause a severe amount of damage. Hurricanes don’t only affect people living along the coast, they can also cause damage even if you live hundreds of miles from the shore. If you’re in an area where hurricanes are a risk, you need a plan. It is best to be prepared in the event of a hurricane and THD has put together the following Disaster Supply and Preparedness list should a hurricane make landfall.
