Is Your Home Disaster-Proof?
We are in the midst of natural disaster season, when hurricanes, tropical storms, wildfires, and floods can hit several vulnerable areas in the United States.
Today the state of Washington is battling a group of wildfires that has already been called the largest in its history. Tropical Storm Erika is quickly developing into a hurricane and is expected to move within 200 miles of South Florida by August 30.
There is some good news. Tropical Storm Danny, which was predicted to eventually develop into a Category 3 hurricane, has just lost its storm status, and forecasters have predicted a below-average Atlantic hurricane season.
