This will be a very short post but I wanted to highly recommend the July 2009 issue of the Florida Community Association Journal.  A substantial portion of this special issue is devoted to hurricane preparedness and the magazine is loaded with helpful hints and information (including many addresses for links to websites about weather, shelters, pets, road closings, county resources and safety).  It also includes a "Hurricane Preparedness Directory", which is a region by region list of potential service providers.

If at all possible, try to get a copy of this magazine and keep it around for future reference.  I don’t believe the full content of the issue is available at the FLAJ site yet, but interested ROC managers and board members might consider the site as a good starting point to order a copy. 

Now let’s all get back to crossing our fingers and hoping that we’ll have a boring, uneventful, and safe hurricane season!
