Hurricane officials warn Floridians to prepare in advance of the upcoming storm season

May 30, 2019

Palm Beach County Emergency Management Director, Bill Johnson, spoke during the Governor’s Hurricane Conference about the necessary precautions Floridians have to take for this year’s hurricane season.

Johnson addressed the lack of preparedness of Florida residents, something that was apparent after last year’s season. “Recent studies also show that as many as 74 percent have not made a disaster kit. And 63 percent of Floridians do not have flood insurance — despite 71 percent saying that it’s necessary to help them in their recovery efforts following a disaster,” Johnson said. He emphasized the importance of hurricane readiness especially after the effects they have had on the state for the past three years. 

Throughout the conference several events took place like the signing of House Bill 7123, which includes a sale tax “holiday” for hurricane preparedness and the grant of a $25 million loan program for farmers who suffered losses in their crops due to Hurricane Michael.  There were also various speeches by experts on the field all through the event.
