All Houstonians, especially those in hurricane evacuation zones, should start getting ready for this year's hurricane season.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, hurricane season along the Atlantic Ocean is expected to be more active than usual this year, with a higher probability that major storms will land in Texas.
As we know, every first day of June marks the beginning of the hurricane season, and if Hurricane Harvey taught us anything, it's that we should never let our guard down.
Weather and disaster assistance experts are here to detail the forecast outlook for the 2022 hurricane season, explain the differences between weather advisories, and discuss what residents need to do for tropical storm preparedness or recovery.
Also, we take calls from our listeners to find out what lessons they’ve learned from past hurricane seasons and if they’re ready for the storm this time around.
Meanwhile, our host, Ernie Manouse, along with Craig Cohen of Houston Matters, take us shopping with them for what to purchase for your hurricane emergency kit.
