According to the National Hurricane Center the official hurricane season in the Atlantic began June 1st and ends November 30th. Most families here in Central Florida know they need to have certain supplies on hand in case of power outages, a supply of clean water and non-perishable food items at the minimum to last for at least 72 hours.
Homeowners have additional steps to the hurricane preparedness for their homes such as boarding up windows, having a generator and clearing their property of items around their homes like outdoor furnishings, etc. One of the things that most residents who own their homes need to consider is their roof is the first line of defense to the weather year round here in Central Florida from battling the intense heat, seasonal thunderstorms which can cause hail, gusting winds and torrential rain.
