Prepare Your Business for Severe Summer Weather
Natural disasters can strike at any time. And in addition to wildfires and tornados, hurricanes will be active this year. This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has predicted an above-normal 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
“Early preparation and understanding your risk is key to being hurricane resilient and climate-ready,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo in response to NOAA’s hurricane season prediction.
