About this Event

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. For many Floridians, especially those new to the state, hurricane season can be stressful and anxiety inducing. But it doesn’t have to be! Learning about the science behind storms, watches, and warnings can empower you to tackle the season like a seasoned Floridian.  

For more than 25 years, award-winning broadcast meteorologist Amy Sweezey has delivered forecasts on TV and spoken to countless groups about weather, broadcasting, writing, and "weathering the storms of life." In this talk, she will share her forecast for safely equipping yourself, your home, and your business for impending tropical weather.  

In this informative presentation Amy shares: 

* The current season’s forecast 

* Preparation tips 

* The difference between a watch and a warning 

* Why forecast accuracy matters 

* How hurricanes are named 

* What computer models really mean – and don’t 

* What goes in a hurricane kit 

* How to stay mentally calm when a storm is heading our way  

This program is presented by Amy Sweezey and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
