Red Cross Post: It's Here...Hurricane Season 2012

Monday, August 29th, 2005 - the day Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana and Mississippi - was without a doubt the most memorable day of my professional life. Someday I'll share more about how that day and the days that followed changed the course of my career, but for today I'll simply share that hurricane season, despite the fact that until last January I'd never lived in a region of the country where hurricanes were a risk, isn't a season I take lightly.

While experts predict this season will be a relatively mild one, it's important for individuals, families, organizations, and communities to be prepared should our country face another storm like Hurricane Katrina. You can read all about how to prepare for this coming hurricane season, which begins tomorrow on June 1st, in my most recent post on the National American Red Cross blog.
