A strong and early start to the hurricane season serves as a good reminder to review your preparedness plan. Hurricane Beryl breaks the record for the earliest Cat 5 and experts are predicting an active season. Though the storms' paths are sometimes unclear, it doesn't take a direct hit to damage or sink recreational vessels, or cause havoc at boat storage facilities. Please take some time now to review your hurricane and emergency preparedness plans, and continue to keep a close eye on forecasts as the hurricane season continues. Below are some helpful websites. It is important to always be prepared.
