LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — According to predictions from the National Weather Service, it looks like this year will be a more active hurricane season.
Today a hurricane season public forum was held with representatives form the National Weather Service, the National Incident Management Systems and Advanced Technologies (NIMSAT), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) discussing safety precautions we can make ahead of time to prepare for this active season. Congressman Boustany has teamed up with these organizations to remind the public how important safety precautions are in preparation of an active storm season.
"Knowledge is power and knowing what to expect with regard to storms, making sure that families and businesses have a plan going into the storm season it's very important," says Congressman Charles Boustany.
