The 2008 hurricane season began Sunday, June 1, and lasts through the end of November. Representatives from the Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, the Leon County Sheriffs Office, the Leon County Division of Emergency Management, and the National Weather Service gathered on Friday, May 30, to emphasize the importance of hurricane preparedness.

Residents are encouraged to develop hurricane plans using the 2008 Hurricane Survival Guide. More than 165,000 copies of the new guide were distributed in weekly and daily newspapers in the Capital Area, including the Tallahassee Democrat. The Survival Guide assists people in making that first important decision - whether to stay or go - based on their individual risk factors, while also showing citizens how to prepare for both before and after the storm. The information can also be found on the user-friendly Web site, www.haveahurricaneplan.com.
