Prepare now for storms that could affect your area
The 2018 Hurricane Season begins on June 1. Last year, we witnessed an unprecedented hurricane season that communities in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands will be recovering from for years to come. Never before has it been so important for those in hurricane-prone areas to share information about preparedness to help save lives and protect their communities.
What can you do to get ready?
Powerful hurricanes can affect communities beyond coastal areas. High winds, heavy rainfall, tornadoes, and flooding can be felt hundreds of miles inland, potentially causing loss of life and catastrophic damage to property. It only takes one to change your life and your community. As Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac remind us, it is not just major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher) that we need to worry about. All hurricanes could potentially cause significant damage.

homeless, in foster care, involved in the juvenile justice system, unemployed,
or not enrolled in or at risk of dropping out of an educational institution. Through
programs such as AmeriCorps, the Corporation for National and Community Service
(CNCS) recruits opportunity youth to engage in national service projects, and
in return, these young adults receive mentoring, coaching, and skills development
that position them for success after their service ends.
