Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Preparedness

You might call 2004 the “Year of the Hurricane,” as the number of tropical storms broke a 100-year-old record. More than 600,000 square miles of land were affected—and experts expect a “whirlwind” 2005.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency - a former independent agency that became part of the new Department of Homeland Security in March 2003 - is tasked with responding to, planning for, recovering from and mitigating against disasters.

Red Cross

The American Red Cross responds to disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and fires, or other situations that cause human suffering or create human needs that those affected cannot alleviate without assistance. It is an independent, humanitarian, voluntary organization, not a government agency.
