    Most of us are well aware of all of this information, but I thought I would copy what I received from the Canadian consulate this morning. Just FYI....(If you are a Canadian living here, I suggest registering with the consulate, you can do it online)


    Please share the following important information with all the Canadian citizens in your organization, area or district.
    Hurricane Season is now upon us and extends from June 1 through November 30. The key to hurricane or tropical storm protection is preparation, and we encourage you and your family to review your personal safety practices. By taking sensible measures before, during, and after a hurricane, many lives can be saved and property damage averted.
    Keep well informed by listening to the latest warnings and advisories on the radio, television, or web sites. Many Hurricane Centres will issue and update these when necessary. It is also important to follow the advice of local authorities and emergency response personnel. Note that the contact information for Protección Civil authorities in your state is as follows:

    A hurricane preparedness plan includes three basic elements that are important in the threat of any severe weather event, and not just for hurricanes:
    1. Maintaining a disaster or emergency supply kit;
    2. Securing your home and property;
    3. Having a safe place to go in the event of evacuation or prolonged utility outage.
    We would encourage you to visit the following web sites where further information is available, on hurricanes specifically and emergency preparedness in general.
