... Hurricane preparedness...
The following is a safe boating message from the National safe
boating Council and the National Weather Service for this year's
National safe boating week.
Boaters: be prepared for hurricane season. Don't wait until a
Hurricane Warning to secure your boat. By the time a Hurricane
Warning is issued, it's too late to be working on a dock safely.
Listen to weather forecasts and plan ahead. Haul out your boat or
add additional lines during a hurricane or tropical storm watch,
which is issued before a warning, 48 hours before the anticipated
onset of of storm winds.
