I GREW UP ON THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST AND REMEMBER A NUMBER OF STRONG HURRICANES, BUT NOWHERE GETS THE ATTENTION LIKE MY CURRENT HOME STATE OF FLORIDA. SITTING OUT LIKE A "SORE THUMB", THE SUNSHINE STATE IS IN THE DIRECT LINE OF FIRE FOR ATLANTIC HURRICANES APPROACHING THE U.S., YET WE'VE ESCAPED THEM TOTALLY IN THE LAST DECADE. IN THE MEANTIME, MILLIONS HAVE MOVED HERE FROM OTHER PLACES AND SEEM TO HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT HOW TO BE READY.  SINCE NO LOCATION IN FLORIDA IS MORE THAN 60 MILES FROM THE OPEN SEA, IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT SOONER OR LATER WE'LL SEE ONE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

TUESDAY MORNING ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL TALK A BIT ABOUT OUR HISTORY WITH HURRICANES AND SEPARATE FACT FROM FICTION. WE'LL ALSO OFFER A FEW POINTERS ON HOW TO GET READY AND WHAT YOU'LL NEED BECAUSE BEING PREPARED PAYS OFF WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OFF AND THE TAP DOESN'T RUN.  IT'S AMAZING THAT MOST RESIDENTS ARE WOEFULLY PREPARED, YET THEY ARE THE FIRST TO COMPLAIN WHEN GOVERNMENT ISN'T THERE AT THEIR BECKONING WHEN THE TIME COMES.

HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR A SHORT PRE-SEASON PREPARATION FOR WHAT MIGHT AWAIT US. THE SHOW STARTS AT 8:30 AM AND THEN WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND.
