Eyes On Isaac

Tropical Storm Isaac is marching up the Caribbean with its eye on Florida. It’s likely to become Hurricane Isaac on Friday—the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew.

If you were in Florida during Andrew, you know how important it is to be informed and prepared.

The National Weather Service is a helpful source if you’re looking for forecast information. And the Florida Division of Emergency Management has information specific to the Sunshine State.

Online you might consider keeping up with the National Weather Service on Twitter and Facebook, or following the National Hurricane Center on Twitter.

In addition to keeping up with the forecast, there are sites like Ready.gov (Listo.govpara español) that have good tips on preparing and staying safe in case storms do make landfall in our state.

We’re in the peak of hurricane season, so now’s a good opportunity to take a look at these resources if you haven’t had a chance yet.

The preceding is a public service message from The SOG City Oracle.

And, you are welcome.

Thanks to Senator Bill Nelson's office for this information.
