--------------- HURRICANE SEASON --------------

Hurricane Season runs from June 1st through November 30th.
Forecasters are expecting a busier than usual season in 2017:
Predictions call for 11 - 17 named storms.
5 - 9 of which could become hurricanes.
2 - 4 of which could become major hurricanes.

No matter how many storms form, that does not mean any will make landfall in the U.S. or in South Florida. But all it takes is one storm to cause damage. Easy 93.1 urges you to be prepared.

Here are links to important information about Hurricane Readiness and what do before, during and after a storm:

Easy 93.1 partners with the American Heart Association year-round to raise awareness of the issue of women and heart disease.

Why it Matters: #lifeiswhy

The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Campaign reminds you that heart disease is still the #1 killer of women. 1 in 3 women will die of heart disease - yet 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

Know your numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and body mass index / BMI) and schedule your annual well-woman visit. Learn more about the causes, your risk factors, and prevention tips here.
