As hurricane season approaches, residents should take the time now to prepare their homes for storms, said a University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension faculty member.
According to UF/IFAS Extension Highlands County Director Laurie Hurner, it is never too soon to prepare for what can become a devastating hurricane season. “Weather can change in a blink of an eye. It’s better to be prepared than to try to remember what you will need,” she said. “It’s better to prepare now, before a storm hits, than wait until right before a hurricane to head to the stores.”
