Gov. Abbott declares Hurricane Preparedness Week


Governor Greg Abbott declared this week, May 26–June 1, Hurricane Preparedness Week in the State of Texas.

“This Hurricane Preparedness Week, Texans are encouraged to learn more about safety measures and make an emergency plan to protect themselves and their loved ones from the destructive power of hurricanes,” the Governor said. “By implementing proactive measures, we can stave off the worst eventualities, protect the lives and well-being of all Texans, and keep our great state safe.”

June 1 is traditionally recognized as the start of Hurricane Season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) last week predicted an above-normal 2024 Hurricane Season, forecasting 17-25 named storms this year.
