National Hurricane Preparedness Week

National Hurricane Preparedness Week is this week, May 1 through May 7. You'll find plenty of materials, including social media plans (in English and Spanish) here:

NWS Houston/Galveston will be sharing posts over social media based on the topic of the day. Follow us on Twitter at @NWSHouston and on Facebook at NWSHouston.

Attention teachers: Note there is a webinar from the National Hurricane Center geared for grades 3 through 8 and ideal for classrooms and homeschool families. There is more information at the link above and you can register at the link below.

Also, NWS Houston/Galveston has published a new 2022 Hurricane/Severe Weather Guide which can be found here:

We'll also have a PDF version of this guide available. We encourage you to share this link with your jurisdictions, and workgroups and include the link on your preparedness web pages.

Now is the time to get prepared! NOAA seasonal forecast will be issued later this month but those forecasts that have been issued so far suggest another above-average season overall. Also in recent years storms developing prior to June 1 have been common.
