My Advice to Those Along the Gulf and Florida-Georgia Coasts

Will there be a tropical storm? Don't know.
Will there be a hurricane? Don't know.
If there is a hurricane, where will it hit? Again, I don't know.

That said, it I were a governmental or corporate emergency manager in in coastal Florida, Georgia or the Gulf coast to the east of Texas, I would be dusting off the hurricane emergency procedures and seeing if they need to be updated. It has been nearly 11 years since a major hurricane hit the United States and many things have changed since them. Just in case the streak should end, you want to take this time to take a look at procedures and make sure they are both current and appropriate. 

To the public at large? Nothing needs to be done at this point.
