The National Weather Service (NWS) has declared May 1-7, 2022, to be Hurricane Preparedness Week. Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) urges all Camden County citizens to take time to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season that begins June 1, 2022.
Colorado State University hurricane researchers are predicting above-normal activity for the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season. All residents should be aware that it only takes one storm to have a major impact on our community. In 2021, our county received damage from a tornado caused by Tropical Storm Elsa.
“We want to encourage all Camden County residents to join us in taking action now to ensure the safety of their families, homes, and businesses,” said EMA Director Chuck White. “We cannot understate the importance of preparing now for the upcoming hurricane season.”
Throughout the week, Camden County EMA will share about determining risks, evacuation planning, disaster supplies, checking insurance, home preparation, helping neighbors, and completing a written plan. Camden County residents may find specific information and tips posted throughout the week on the Camden County EMA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
