Atlantic hurricane season still expected to be strongest since 2012
Forecasters now predict a 70% chance of 12 – 17 named storms, 5-8 to become hurricanes and 2-4 will become major hurricanes.
As we move into the peak of hurricane season. Elmore County EMA want to make sure you have a “Hurricane Preparedness Plan” .
Just because you don’t live on the coast, doesn’t mean you won’t be effected by a Hurricane. Storm surge is really the only product of a hurricane not felt inland.
Tornados are a threat out in front of hurricanes, but the main threat is that Hurricanes produce heavy rainfall. This rainfall can last for days, causing widespread flooding. Please “Turn Around – Don’t Drown”. Watch this video
