How serious is hurricane season in Texas? Well, Gov. Greg Abbott took part in a teleconference with President Trump this month on the subject.

Hurricane season began June 1 and runs through Nov. 30.

On June 6, Gov. Abbott joined President Donald Trump, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, FEMA Administrator Brock Long, Cabinet members and Governors from across the country for a video teleconference briefing on hurricane preparedness.

The briefing was held to review key lessons learned after the 2017 hurricane season, and FEMA also provided an overview of the following topics: evacuation zones, clearance times, decision timelines and forecast uncertainty, responsible decision makers, and public messaging.

“As the recovery from Hurricane Harvey continues and another hurricane season begins, now is the time to prepare,” said Governor Abbott. “The state is actively readying resources and communication and response strategies to protect families and property in the event of another hurricane. I thank the Administration for today’s briefing, and I look forward to our continued coordination with federal partners throughout the 2018 hurricane season.”

Be prepared for this season by putting together an emergency kit, creating a communication plan, preparing your home for storms and following warnings from local officials. You can find more tips at the Texas Prepares website.
