Tropical storm Ophelia is currently churning in the Atlantic, the fifteenth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. We’re closely monitoring the progress of the storm through our regional offices in Atlanta, New York, Denton, Texas and our Caribbean Area Office in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
While it is too early to know whether Ophelia will pose a threat to the U.S. mainland or territories, it’s never too early to be prepared. Hurricane season runs through November 30, if you haven’t already, visit Ready.gov/hurricanes for tips on creating your family emergency plan and getting an emergency kit.
