What is a hurricane?
A hurricane is a tropical cyclone with sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or more. Winds can exceed 160 miles per hour and extend inland for hundreds of miles. Hurricanes bring high winds, torrential rains and storm surges as they get closer to land. Hurricanes can also spawn tornadoes. The hurricane season lasts from June through November. Hurricanes are classified in five categories based on wind speed and range from One (74 to 95 mph) to Five (155 mph+). Having emergency kits for your employees is especially important when a hurricane is approaching. You generally have plenty of notice when a hurricane is heading towards your area, but having the necessary supplies on hand will save you time.
