Hurricane-Ready: Introduction

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

It's the time of year when all of us start looking toward the tropics and wondering what this hurricane season has in store.

We had a couple of close calls last year. Isaac threatened Tampa Bay enough to push back the start of the Republican National Convention, and Debbie turned out to be a deadly tropical storm. That is why it is so important to equip and prepare yourself with the most recent and best possible information – the kind of information you'll find in this guide.

For the most part, all of us who live in Central Florida have been lucky the past couple of years.
Again this year hurricane forecasters are calling for an active storm season. In addition to this
guide, Storm Team 8 will keep you informed on TV, on WFLA.com and through social media such
as Twitter and Facebook.

Turn to us before, during and after a hurricane, tropical storm or severe weather threatens. But
no matter what is predicted, it only takes one storm. That impact could change your life forever
if you and your family are not prepared. It's vital to have a survival kit and most importantly, stay informed.

Remember: the idea is to get ready and stay ready, whether the big storms threaten us this season or not.
