We are now entering the Atlantic basin hurricane season. When the storms run up the coast, be they full on Hurricanes or Tropical Storms, you can now see how important it is to heed the advice of local officials when they say to shelter in place or get the heck out. Just watch those vids and pictures and file them away for future use when you think, “Ah, it won’t be that bad.” #ounceofprevention.
