Introduction

September seems to be the start of hurricane season and this year seems to have some pretty devastating storms. We want all of our friends in Florida to be safe and prepared for such stormy weather. Hope that many of our friends were able to make it through Hurricane Frances and now are prepared for the next big storm Hurricane Ivan. Sending lots of good wishes your way!!

Below are some resources that we hope will help people in and around Florida as the hurricane comes close.

How do you compare today's hurricanes with past hurricanes and how they impacted the people, the economy, and the environment?
