Countdown to a Hurricane:
Hurricane season in Corpus Christi officially starts June 1 and ends November 30. During this stretch of time, you’ll hear numerous reports of hurricane warnings and watches. Here’s a quick overview about what these terms mean … and what you need to do when you hear them.
The National Weather Service issues a hurricane watch when there’s a threat of hurricane conditions (winds of 74+ miles per hour or dangerously high water and rough seas) within 24-36 hours. A warning is issued when these conditions are expected within the next 24 hours.
Hurricane advisories are released every six hours – 5 a.m., 11 a.m., 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. The bulletins provide the storm’s eye position, intensity, and forecasted movement. The most important detail is where the storm is headed.
Whenever a watch is issued, here’s what you need to do to protect yourself:
Before hurricane season arrives, implement “The 7 Secrets of Hurricane Preparedness.” And make sure you have proper insurance coverage for any hurricane damage your home suffers.
