UF Meteorologist says Floridians should be ready from day 1

By
Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

It has been nearly eight years since North Central Florida has been directly impacted from a hurricane.  Despite several active years since that memorable 2004 season, Floridians have dodged nearly every storm.  But with the 2012 season season upon us, University of Florida Meteorologist Jeff Huffman says that no matter the forecast or what happened the year before, people should prepare the same:

Huffman says people only have to look back 20 years to be reminded that it takes just one storm making landfall to make it an active season.  Andrew was one of only four hurricanes that year, but at the time, it became the costliest storm in U.S. history.  UF Meteorologist Jeff Huffman will have constant upates on tropical developments all season long here on Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM.
