TreasureCoast, Fl- The National Hurricane Center has increased the chance of tropical formation in the next 5 days to 80% in regards to an area of disturbed weather over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico near the Florida panhandle. Regardless of tropical development, this system could bring a very wet week to Florida and our Community. It is a great reminder for us all that we are now in hurricane season and should be prepared for any possible storms. Some helpful tips to prepared this hurricane season include:

– Make sure to have enough supplies to last you and your family at least a week (don’t forget pets)

– Have a full tank of gas for your car and generator or charge up your electric vehicle before a storm approaches (www.plugshare.com/location/141764)

– Have a first aid and basic tool kit

– Be up to date on all needed medications

– Consider having a NOAA weather radio

– Clear storm drains and debris from your gutters

– NEVER drive through flooded roadways or around barriers

– Have an evacuation plan if necessary

Please reply on dependable, official weather sources such as the National Hurricane Center or the local National Weather Service office in Melbourne for information regarding this and all future tropical systems.
