Dear Canadians, you are receiving this because you are registered with the Government of Canada’s Registration of Canadians Abroad Service. Please share the following important information with all the Canadian citizens in your organization, area or district.
The hurricane season extends from May 15 to November 30. Tropical depressions and storms that may develop into hurricanes occur in the North Atlantic and North East Pacific oceans.
For the 2012 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season, 13 tropical cyclones are predicted, 7 of which could become tropical storms, 4 moderate hurricanes and 2 intense hurricanes.
The key to hurricane or tropical storm protection is preparation. We encourage you and your family to review your personal safety practices. By taking sensible measures before, during and after a hurricane, many lives can be saved and property damage averted.
A hurricane preparedness plan includes three basic elements that are important in the threat of any severe weather event: 1) maintain a disaster or emergency supply kit; 2) secure your home and property; and 3) have a safe place to go in the event of an evacuation or prolonged utility outage.
Canadian citizens should keep well informed by listening to the latest warnings and advisories on the radio, television, or web sites.  Many Hurricane Centres will issue and update these when necessary.  It is also important to follow the advice of local authorities and emergency response personnel.
