Hurricane season is upon us! The Atlantic Hurricane Season lasts from June to November of every year. Hurricanes, tropical storms and depressions typically occur within this six-month time frame. With this in mind, it is time to start preparing and making plans on what you will need to do if a hurricane, tropical storm or depression strikes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are a few extra precautions we must keep in mind this year.
