We will soon be in the 2010 hurricane season. Some say it will be busier than in the past few years. Let's hope not. Rain we need. Our underground aquifers are very very low. Hurricanes and tornadoes we DO NOT.
However, in the event that a hurricane does approach our area, it is wise for you to know which evacuation center is nearest to you, just in case you have to evacuate. The last thing you want to do is to search for it at the last minute. This is especially crucial if you live in a mobile home or RV. Even those that are solidly tied down are unlikely to survive a direct hit from a tornado. So do not take any chances.
