The 2018 Hurricane seasons starts today! I encourage everyone in Harris County and South Texas to prepare for a possible hurricane near you. As today’s Houston Chronicle editorial recommends, don’t wait to prepare by gathering non-perishable food and bottled water now. Buy the flashlights and batteries you will need as well as other materials like plywood. Make a “go bag” and be ready with an evacuation plan. Take a minute now to check the Chronicle editorial here for more information.
