Welcome to the 2019 Hurricane Season

This is June 1, 2019, the first day of the 2019 hurricane season, and we welcome you to this brand new site www.HunkerDown.Guide. We are here to provide you with the knowledge, skills, products, and personal perspectives needed as you prepare for and protect your family during hurricane season.

There are many weather threats, but hunkerdown.guide is laser focused on hurricanes and tropical storms.

These massive weather events can be very devastating, both in lives lost and property damage. They are also very scary and stressful, as they can take days and sometimes even weeks from birth to destruction. If you live anywhere near the coast, you have no doubt found yourself at some point inside the dreaded cone of uncertainty.

The good news is that unlike tornadoes and earthquakes, you usually have time to do preparations in advance of tropical storms and hurricanes.

At hunkerdown.guide, we are dedicating our efforts to providing you with all sorts of information, inspiration, and even training on various ways you can prepare yourself. During the storm season we are going to do daily updates to our weather briefing, until we all breath a sigh of relief on November 30, 2019. You can also expect to see new blog posts full of how-to articles, tips, and product reviews to help you develop the skills and confidence to keep as safe as possible.
