Consider This: Hurricane Season

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Hurricane season kicks off this Friday, but with two early storms already impacting our area could it be a sign of a more active season to come? Let's hope not.

Consider This: Even though we don't know if the early activity means a busier season, you should let these early storms serve as a reminder that you need to begin planning now. Is your homeowners insurance up to date? How about your flood insurance? Do you have an evacuation plan?

This year we have new evacuation guidelines and new flood zones so you need to take the time to learn the new information and how it affects you. One way to get the latest details is to join us for Storm Fest on Saturday, June 9th, at Inlet Square Mall in Murrells Inlet. WMBF is partnering with Emergency Management groups and other media to make sure you have the important information to protect your family.

Remember, it's never too early to get your plan in place. Storm Fest 2012 is a great opportunity to begin that process.
