National Hurricane Preparedness Week 2022

Posted By: Liza Watkins,


National Hurricane Preparedness Week, which is scheduled for May 1-7 this year, encourages individuals to evaluate their personal hurricane risks and implement measures to keep themselves and their homes protected during a hurricane.

Hurricanes have become an increasingly prevalent concern throughout many Southern states and along much of the East Coast. In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported 21 named storms during the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, taking the spot for the third highest number of storms in history and costing nearly $70 billion in damages. Weather experts anticipate yet another busy season in 2022, with 16-20 named storms predicted— including up to eight hurricanes, half of which could be labeled major hurricanes with Category 3 strength winds. Between four and six of these hurricanes are expected to make an impact on the United States.

As hurricane season approaches, prepare yourself and your household.
