It is that time of year again, we are headed into the late summer which brings all sorts of wild weather. Tampa Bay’s predicted forecast is lined with storms every day and a beautiful show of lightning every night. Residents of the Gulf Coast are often struck in awe by the works of mother nature unfold, however it is important to be proactive and take steps to ensure you are prepared for the potential aftermath of a disaster.

For the Atlantic Basic- the region that includes the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and the Atlantic Ocean- hurricane season is classified to run its course from June 1st through November 30th. However, anyone living in the Dade City and Land O Lakes knows our peak time of hurricane season is roughly mid-August to late October. While we know this is what we claim to be out busy time period, deadly hurricanes can happen at any time and it is potentially lifesaving to be prepared.

Consider the tips listed below when preparing for a potential storm system heading your way and how to recover afterwards:


  • Create your emergency supply kit and a communication plan
  • Unplug all electronics and appliances
  • Secure outdoor items that might blow away or cause damage
