On our latest edition of AccuWeather LIVE, we be discussed the upcoming peak of hurricane season and what you can do to prepare for it.
Leslie Chapman-Henderson, president and CEO of the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, joined us with Dr. Rick Knabb, director of NOAA's National Hurricane Center, to discuss what homeowners should do to prepare themselves for evacuation when a storm approaches. They emphasized the importance of planning ahead before a storm comes through to make sure that all emergency kits, evacuation routes and insurance policies are ready when the time comes for a hurricane or tropical storm to hit.
Adrienne Green also gave the latest update on activity in the tropics, and Justin Povick gave the general forecast for the nation.
We also took another look at the fall forecast and at what our long-range forecasting team is expecting the country to see in terms of patterns for the fall season.
As always, we answered the questions and comments that our viewers sent in, as well as took a look at their submitted photos.
