Hurricane Season Awareness
NASA states “Hurricanes are the most violent storms on Earth”. But should we track the path of Hurricanes, Tropical Storms/Depressions in Southern West Virginia?
We may be hundreds of miles from the coast but when Hurricanes make landfall they can continue to spread extreme amounts of rain or high winds. These storms can bring torrential rains that can cause severe flooding (compared to wind & surge takes the most lives).
High winds can topple trees and break branches causing damage to roofs and other property. Power poles/lines may fall causing fires, the possibility of electrocution, and blocking driveways and roads.
So stay alert during Hurricane Season, lives and properties can be saved by being prepared and ready to protect your family.
