Emergency Preparedness Tips for the Hurricane Season Prep

Water Restoration

Officially, the Atlantic hurricane season starts on June 1 and ends on November 30. In the Eastern Caribbean and along the US East Coast, however, the peak season runs mainly from mid-August through mid-September. 

A hurricane, or a tropical storm is a destructive force of nature that can wreak incredible havoc along its path.
