Hurricane Season

The 2020 Hurricane Season is around the corner, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a busy Atlantic 2020 season. Current forecasts predict a likely range of 13 to 19 named storms, of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes. Two storms have already been named, Bertha, being the most recent, made landfall in South Carolina earlier this week. 

Hurricane and storm tracks can be very unpredictable and can quickly change,” said Director of Emergency Services Brad Goudie. “That is why now is the time to begin preparing for storms to make sure your family and your property are prepared well in advance of a real threat.”

Over the next several weeks, the Office of Emergency Management and the City of Seabrook’s Communication Department will be releasing a series of video and graphic PSA’s on social media. “Unlike prior years, we are unable to hold our annual Hurricane Town Hall meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions,” said LeaAnn Petersen, the city’s Director of Communication. “So this year, we will be strategically releasing information which will guide and encourage our residents and businesses to prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane.” 

To get a head start, residents and businesses can download the Seabrook Ready preparedness guide. This extensive guide provides information on how to prepare your family for a storm, including information on hurricane evacuation routes and detailed information on what to include in your emergency go kit. 

“Staff and Seabrook first responders are actively preparing for the 2020 Hurricane Season,” said Mayor Thom Kolupski. “The COVID-19 pandemic has created unfamiliar challenges for local governments, and FEMA and other agencies are providing new guidance as we approach this new normal.”
