It’s Hurricane Season Jacksonville and it’s time to be on prepared and on the look out for Tropical Storms and Hurricanes that will be hitting North Florida over the next several months. It is no secret that both tropical storms and hurricanes can cause a lot of damage from both wind and water including floods which can lead to water damage.
Be sure to make certain you have completed your Disaster Supplies Checklist and make certain to stay up to date on the latest news and weather warnings from the weather channel and the local news.
Below is a snippet from CNN declairing “Tropical Storm Andrea is set to wallop Florida with torrential rain as it prepares to make landfall Thursday.”
Forecasters don’t expect Andrea to strengthen to a hurricane — which would require sustained winds of at least 74 mph. Early Thursday morning, Andrea carried maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. But the greatest trouble will be water.
Andrea is expected to unleash 3 to 6 inches of rain over much of Florida and southeastern Georgia and as much as 8 inches in some areas. The eastern parts of North and South Carolina could see up to 4 inches of rain, the National Hurricane Center said.
“The combination of a storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters,” the hurricane center said.
