Climate Change & Hurricane Impact

With hurricanes holding more moisture, leading to intense flooding rainfall, and storm surges rising due to higher sea levels, our coastal communities face new challenges.

Essential Preparedness Tips

Field meteorologist, Derek Van Dam, emphasizes the importance of readiness. Before a hurricane's potential landfall, it's crucial to prepare an emergency kit, charge your devices, fill your gas tanks, and plan evacuation routes. Waiting until the last minute can be risky, as emergency services may be unavailable once tropical storm-force winds hit.
