There is currently one name left on the hurricane list for 2020, and it’s only September. Hurricane researchers predicted that we’d have a very active hurricane season, but many individuals and communities weren’t expecting this. The season extends into November and many people are asking, how many more storms are possible?
Natural disasters bring hardships to communities around the world. They shake our reality and destroy our homes. With these storms presenting difficult times it’s essential for associations to communicate with homeowners. This includes updating any programs or extra hands that will be ready to aid in the clean-up efforts.

Rebuilding a community can seem like an enormous task. Remember that you’re not alone in this! Lean on neighbors, and help others when possible.
