FRAMINGHAM, MA – Although the Atlantic Hurricane Season is defined as June 1st to November 30th, 75% of the 40 tropical storm systems that have impacted the New England region in the past century have struck during the months
of August and September. The fact that Massachusetts was impacted by Hurricane Arthur during early July, reminds
us that we must not let our guard down. To increase public awareness of the potential devastating impacts of
hurricanes and tropical storms and the preparedness steps we can take to mitigate those impacts and reduce the risk
of property damage, injuries and loss of life, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is again
making important information available to ensure the continued safety of our citizens and property.
