President Obama is warning America against more powerful and more devastating hurricanes to the U.S.
He called for every American to put together a disaster supply kit and evacuation plan.
The 2016 Hurricane Season has started on June 1, 2016. And Pres. Obama warned US citizens against more powerful and more devastating hurricanes to the U.S due to global change.
Yes, it is true! Everybody should be prepared for another cataclysmic natural disaster!
“All of us have seen the heartbreak, the damage and, in some case, the loss of life that hurricanes can cause. And as climate continues to change, hurricanes are only going to become more powerful and more devastating.
One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.
And what we’ve been seeing is some public complacency slipping in; a large portion of people not having preparedness kits, not having evacuation plans. We’ve been stagnant a little bit with respect to the number of people, the percentage of people who respond to an evacuation order. All that has to pick up, because we want to make sure that, although it’s hard to prevent property damage, that we are doing everything we can to prevent loss of life.
If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, we’ve got an app for everything now. We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster.
Meanwhile, the U.S. has now gone a record 127 straight months without a major hurricane making landfall – and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a near normal Atlantic hurricane season 2016. But weather.com warns that the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season is expected to be the most active since 2012.
So, be prepared, because it is coming.
