PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY  
600 AM EDT SAT MAY 21 2016  
   
..NATIONAL HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK IS FROM MAY 15 TO MAY 21
 
 
PLEASE JOIN THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE IN UPTON  
NEW YORK IN OBSERVING NATIONAL HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK.  
 
TODAY'S TOPIC COVERS COMPLETING YOUR WRITTEN HURRICANE PLAN.  
 
THE TIME TO PREPARE FOR A HURRICANE IS BEFORE THE SEASON BEGINS,  
WHEN YOU HAVE THE TIME AND ARE NOT UNDER PRESSURE. IF YOU WAIT UNTIL  
A HURRICANE IS ON YOUR DOORSTEP, THE ODDS ARE THAT YOU WILL BE UNDER  
DURESS AND WILL MAKE THE WRONG DECISIONS. TAKE THE TIME NOW TO WRITE  
DOWN YOUR HURRICANE PLAN. KNOW WHERE YOU WILL RIDE OUT THE STORM AND  
GET YOUR SUPPLIES NOW. YOU DON'T WANT TO BE STANDING IN LONG LINES  
WHEN A HURRICANE WARNING IS ISSUED. THOSE SUPPLIES THAT YOU NEED  
WILL PROBABLY BE SOLD OUT BY THE TIME YOU REACH THE FRONT OF THE  
LINE. BEING PREPARED, BEFORE A HURRICANE THREATENS, MAKES YOU  
RESILIENT TO THE HURRICANE IMPACTS OF WIND AND WATER. IT WILL MEAN  
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR BEING A HURRICANE VICTIM AND A HURRICANE  
SURVIVOR.  
 
BE PREPARED THIS HURRICANE SEASON...AND VISIT HURRICANES.GOV  
AND READY.GOV/HURRICANES.
