BoatUS Hurricane Resource Center
Hurricane season officially started at the beginning of June and we have already been visited by Arlene, Bret, and Cindy. Although we have no control over how many hurricanes we will encounter this season or how damaging they will be, we do have control over how prepared we will be to face them.

The BoatUS Hurricane Resource Center is a great place to track the latest storms and news, sign up for hurricane advisory emails, view preparation guides, and get advice on what to do after a hurricane has hit. You can even view photos of past hurricane damage and access useful links that may help you prepare or recover from a hurricane or other large storm.

For more information, visit the BoatUS Hurricane Resource Center at www.boatus.com/hurricanes.
