In the middle of all the Katrina 10 events taking place around the region, Mother Nature reminds us who is really in charge. Hurricane Danny is being closely monitored for any potential impacts to our communities. At this point, our contacts with the state's emergency preparedness system are keeping us well informed with hourly updates on Danny's status. As our people know from years of experience living along the Gulf Coast, now is not a time to panic as many tropical events will change in direction, strength and size many times before ever reaching any area of concern. However, I would urge everyone to take this time to check your supplies and make sure you have a hurricane game plan.
The encouraging news about Hurricane Danny is that although it is currently a Category 3 storm, meteorologists are expecting it to begin loosing strength. It is also a very small hurricane and several tropical weather models are projecting it to break apart before ever reaching landfall.
We will keep you posted on any developments that would place our communities on alert.
