The Dominican Republic is a hurricane-prone country. Hurricane season in the Caribbean is already underway and runs from June through late October, with the peak season occurring mid-August.
It’s never too late to make hurricane preparations that can prevent catastrophic damage and injury resulting from the heavy winds that can exceed 155 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) and its partners are a trusted source to turn to for the latest weather advisories and hurricane warnings. The NHC mission is to save lives, mitigate property loss, and improve economic efficiency by issuing the best watches, warnings, forecasts and analyses of hazardous tropical weather, and by increasing understanding of these hazards.
While it’s important to remain aware of the weather patterns occurring in the tropics during hurricane season, it is equally important to prepare your family, home and business for the unpredictable wrath of Mother Nature. The impact from hurricanes and tropical storms is often felt not just along the coastal areas, but also hundreds of miles inland.
