As peak hurricane season approaches for the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, AccuWeather— a provider of weather forecasts and warnings— wants people to be “AccuWeather Ready” for whatever the season brings.
The AccuWeather Ready site at accuweather.com/ready offers a wealth of information and useful and compelling content to help people prepare for the season’s weather risks, including safety tips and resources, personalized weather preparedness plans, detailed checklists, and more. AccuWeather Ready videos are featured on the AccuWeather Network.
Users also can view AccuWeather Ready videos and receive severe weather push notifications in the AccuWeather app on iOS and Android.
To get life-saving information to more people and to answer questions they might have, the AccuWeather Ready program will also present a series of live events each Wednesday at 1 p.m. U.S. EDT, August 1 through August 27, each featuring an expert meteorologist from AccuWeather or another authoritative and skilled professional from external agencies. The live events will be viewable on Facebook, Twitter, and You- Tube.
