CU System
Its Hurricane Preparedness Week in Louisiana
HARAHAN, La. (5/29/09)--The official start of the hurricane season is Monday, June 1. Louisiana Gov. Bob Jindal has proclaimed this week as Hurricane Preparedness Week, according to the Louisiana Credit Union League. The aim of the week is to remind people to prepare for emergencies and have a plan if a hurricane should hit the state. The league said it also is taking steps to prepare credit unions for the upcoming hurricane season. It was mailing to credit unions packets containing information such as financial checklist, an emergency contact list for the credit union, a hurricane tracking map, and other tools for disasters (eNews May 27). The National Hurricane Center has dedicated a website for Hurricane Preparedness Week. Credit unions along the coasts should have their business continuity plans up to date. The center says that during an average three-year period, roughly five hurricanes will strike the U.S. coastline anywhere from Texas to Maine and will kill from 50 to 100 people. Two of these likely will be major or intense storms of category three or higher.
