Hurricane Ready - Season Starts Soon

Organizations such as NOAA, The National Hurricane Center, FEMA, The American Red Cross and Readygov are reminding everyone about Hurricane season which starts very soon..

Remember that Hurricanes do not just affect coastal areas. Many of us remember what has happened in recent history with Irene, Lee and Superstorm Sandy.  The NHC has issued it's general forecast for this year and they are expecting an active Hurricane season. 

These organizations have generously distributed this PDF guide about Tropical Cyclones to the public.

Here is a Nat Geo video featuring Tim Samaras who tracked down the birth of a Tornado near South Central Kansas.  Winds were clocked at over 200 miles per hour.
