Hurricanes and Tornados are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena. These severe tropical storms form in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean or the South Pacific Ocean, as they need warm tropical oceans, moisture and light winds above them. If the right conditions last long  enough, a hurricane can produce violent winds, incredible waves, torrential rains and floods.


One of Canada's most destructive hurricanes, Hurricane Juan, killed 8 and caused over $200 million in damage. Power outages in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island left over 300,000 Canadians without power for two weeks.


Here are three simple steps you can take now to prepare for this hurricane season:


1.  Review and share the Government of Canada Hurricane Forecasts and Facts with your employees, family and friends who live in areas where Hurricanes frequent:

2.  Perform a brief business resiliency self-assessment to understand your organizational rediness

3.  Reach out and engage with the relevant Emergency Management Organizations for your location(s) of operation:
