Hurricane Season is here

To the community,

The tropics have become a bit more active last week, with three areas of concern being monitored by the National Hurricane Center. These areas may or may not develop into serious tropical threats, however, now is the time to double check your disaster kit and make certain that you have all the supplies you need to sustain yourself for at least three days.

Water, non-perishable food items, medications, important papers, a nonelectric can opener, and personal hygiene items are just some of the things you should already have in your kit.

We will watch the systems and keep everyone advised if anything develops, all we ask is that you help us out by preparing now and not waiting until the last minute. If you have any questions regarding hurricane preparations, please feel free to call the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management at 936-334-3219.
