Hurricane season is June 1st through November 30th in the Atlantic and May 15th through November 30th in the Eastern Pacific. If you live in an area prone to tropical weather you should always prepare your home well in advance of the season – and your pool area is no exception.
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles inland. They can produce winds exceeding 155 miles per hour as well as spawn tornadoes. Be familiar with your homeowner’s insurance policy to see what it covers in event of a storm. You should also look at the trees surrounding your home year-round and be sure they are trimmed so they are wind resistant.
Remember that failing to prepare is preparing to fail. And most importantly, things can always be replaced; keeping your family, pets and yourself safe is your first priority.
