Hurricane Season Ends

November 30th, 2007 by flanews

Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp and state emergency response team leaders marked the official end of the 2007 hurricane season. For the second straight year, Florida avoided a direct hit. Meteorologists say the state was lucky, because high pressure systems forced Category 5 Hurricanes Dean and Felix further south. But with two quiet seasons in a row, state leaders want to remind Floridians to stay prepared and not forget what happened in 2004 and 2005

Its still fresh in the minds of a lot of people,” said Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp. “And I think that because of the work done by this amazing emergency response team to keep people prepared and continually pressing to have a family plan, we see a far greater level of preparedness and understanding of how quick this could happen and how significant it is.

The state emergency response team wants to remind people that the end of hurricane season is the start of wildfire season, and to also prepare accordingly.
