It’s Hurricane Season. We’re Ready. Are You?

Jun 11, 2015

The 2015 Hurricane season has arrived and Better Power is stocking up on Home Standby Generators.

Don’t let your customers wait until the storm hits. By then it will be too late. Sell them a backup generator system now, before the power goes out.

NOAA is predicting that along the Atlantic, there will be a 70 percent likelihood of six to 11 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which between three and six could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher). At most, two of those are expected to become major hurricanes, defined as Category 3, 4 or 5, characterized by winds of 111 mph or higher.

 While a “below-normal” season is likely in the Atlantic, there is still a 10 percent chance of an above-normal season.

“A below-normal season doesn’t mean we’re off the hook. As we’ve seen before, below-normal seasons can still produce catastrophic impacts to communities,” said NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., referring to the 1992 season in which only seven named storms formed, yet the first was Andrew – a Category 5 Major Hurricane that devastated south Florida.

FEMA officials, meanwhile, used the arrival of the hurricane season to advise coastal residents to be prepared. Among other things it called for people to “develop a family communications plan, build an emergency supply kit for your home and take time to learn evacuation routes for your area.”

“It only takes one hurricane or tropical storm making landfall in your community to significantly disrupt your life,” said FEMA Deputy Administrator Joseph Nimmich. “Everyone should take action now to prepare themselves and their families for hurricanes and powerful storms. “

Help your customers prepare themselves and their families for hurricane season and other powerful storms year-round. Equip them with an automatic backup generator from Better Power.
