First Tropical Storm of Season Signifies Importance of Emergency Preparedness

“Yesterday, the Miami Herald reported that Tropical Storm Arthur, currently moving along the coast of Florida, could become the season’s first named hurricane of the season as it moves up along the eastern coast of the United States. Right now, the slow-moving storm, with its 60 mph winds, is about 100 miles off the Florida coast and is moving away from the state at about 6 mph. A hurricane watch has been issued for North Carolina. The US National Hurricane Center is monitoring the storm as it moves north. If Tropical Storm Arthur becomes a hurricane it “”will arrive a week before hurricanes typically form in the Atlantic“” according to the Miami Herald.

Summer, for all of its sunshine and vacation days, presents some of the most hazardous weather and situations for the United States.
