Where to Get Good Information for Hurricane Season 2022

Though each website is helpful in providing timely updates, try following each account on Twitter (and turn on your notifications), for real-time information and updates.

In addition to official weather platforms, it may also be wise to follow truck stop services like Love’s and TA. These companies frequently share stop outages to social media, giving you a heads up if your stop is closed.

 

Prepare for the Worst 

Many assume that the danger of a hurricane lies in the torrential rainfall, blustering winds and terrible road conditions—but this simply isn’t true.

The true danger of a hurricane season 2022 is becoming stranded without resources.

Though it’s always ideal to avoid a hurricane altogether, here are a few items you should keep on hand in a worst-case-scenario:

  • Blankets
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights
  • Rain gear
  • Portable phone chargers
  • Non-perishable food
  • Plenty of water

Though having supplies is important, trying to plan your loads with a few different route options is critical. This can be the difference between a load delivered and an involuntary swim.
