Hurricane season is NOW.
Hurricanes in Atlanta, Georgia are among the most dangerous types of weather conditions and for six months out of the year. Hurricanes are dangerous because they dump heavy rain in a short period of time and have very powerful winds. The heavy rain can quickly cause severe water damage and flooding and the winds are strong enough to damage buildings and knock down large objects like trees and power lines. These storms are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage in Atlanta, Georgia. If you live in a hurricane-prone area like Atlanta, Georgia, it is important to prepare for the possibility of a hurricane.
