Red Cross tips for preparing for upcoming hurricane season

With hurricane season right around the corner, it never hurts to brush up on ways to stay safe.

To help, the Red Cross recently released a list of tips and suggestions to better prepare.

The advice couldn’ have come at a better time. On Thursday, the National Weather Service warned that this year’s Atlantic hurricane season would be a busy one.

“Our peak of season is typically between August and September,” said Katie Landry-Guyton, the senior service hydrologist at the National Weather Galveston/Houston.”But that doesn’t prevent us from having a hurricane sooner or later.”

Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
