SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The official start of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season is June 1, but you should already have your hurricane plan in place.

The ArkLaTex doesn’t face the same threat as our neighbors along the gulf coast, but it’s still recommended you have several items in place:

Make a list of supplies for your hurricane kit
Organize important documents
Develop an evacuation plan

“We have to prepare like we normally do. Now is a good time to start getting supplies for your hurricane kit. You should look over your insurance information” said National Hurricane Center Director Dr. Ken Graham.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30th. The peak of the season is in September.
