Hurricane Season Starts Saturday: Are You Ready?

The start of the 2019 hurricane season is just three days away. That means it's time to get the hurricane kit together. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez says you need at least 3 days worth of essentials if you lose power or have to evacuate at the last minute. He's encouraging everyone to take advantage of Florida's hurricane tax holiday running from May 31st to June 6th. Also, he's reminding everyone to take evacuation orders seriously, do not stay in your house thinking you can ride out a storm. Make sure a shelter is open before you arrive and only pack the necessities, like a sleeping bag and your medications.
