Hurricane Season 2020

Be Prepared This Hurricane Season

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1–November 30. As members of South Florida’s community, this year offers unique considerations due to the current coronavirus pandemic. Having experienced such storms as Andrew, Katrina, Wilma, Matthew, and Irma over the past 30 years, we’ve seen firsthand that it only takes one storm to impact your life. The dangers of tropical weather systems are well known and among nature’s most powerful and destructive forces.

As your church family, we care about you and want you to be prepared! Even storms well off the coastline can cause dangerous flooding, destructive winds, and powerful tornadoes. Please visit the National Hurricane Center’s preparedness checklist to make sure you and your family have what you need ready to go before the stores are bombarded during a threat. And as you prepare, don’t forget to check on your neighbors to ensure they’re prepared, too! Lend a helping hand to the people on your street, particularly those who would have trouble preparing on their own.

If you are new to the area and unfamiliar with how to board up and protect your home, here is a video we’ve found to be helpful.

Throughout this hurricane season, you can check back here for any updates or information whenever the threat of a hurricane strikes.

Here are ways you can help:

If you would like to come alongside us in loving our neighbors and helping those in our community secure their homes should the threat of a storm arise, email us here! Outreach@CalvaryFTL.org. Here’s a video that demonstrates and explains how you could help!
