Avoid Hurricane Amnesia
Hurricane Amnesia is a common trend during the years between catastrophic storms. A time when people ignore storm warnings and fail to take the most basic precautions. In areas of the state which have dodged the proverbial bullet for a decade or more, apathy has set in. Worse, some Floridians believe media reports urging storm preparation are scare tactics used by industries poised to profit from pre-storm panic. Nothing is further from the truth.
PREPARE FOR THE SEASON
Need another Whitepaper here. As we enter the 2012 storm season, the National Hurricane Center is highly concerned Floridians have lapsed into a false sense of security. With no major storms making landfall in Florida over the last six years, complacency has set in. It’s a phenomenon known as Hurricane Amnesia.
