Though we may not welcome it, the Atlantic Hurricane Season is once again upon us. This means that as happens every year between the 1st of June and the 30th of November, we and the rest of the Caribbean are at an increased risk for storms and hurricanes.
Today, the 1st of June, marks the Atlantic Hurricane Season and for the seventh consecutive year, forecasters advise that this season will bring above average levels of storm activity to the region. We therefore must all play our part to be as prepared as possible.
