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.

by Roger Caldwell In Florida, there is an obsession with guns, and there are over 1 million concealed weapons in the state. The popularity of active concealed weapons permits has surged in Florida in the past 10 years. In 2002, there were only 250,000 gun permits, and in 2012 there were over 1 million. For the NRA and the Florida Legislature this is an achievement, but for gun control supporters this is insane.
