Hurricane Season Begins June 1
The Atlantic Hurricane Season begins June 1 and ends November 30. As we all know, very well based on our past experiences, storms can and do threaten our Town, and that threat must be taken seriously. Federal, state and local agencies have their roles in providing assistance in the event our area is impacted by a hurricane or tropical storm, however, this assistance should not be perceived as a substitute for individual planning and preparedness. Each and every one of us must take personal responsibility for ourselves and our families by being prepared to deal with the aftermath of a storm. Advanced planning, staying calm, and being patient are the most important things to do. This will make it easier for everyone should a storm threaten Highland Beach.
