--------------- 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:

Broward County Emergency Operations.
Our TV news partner, WSVN 7.
The National Hurricane Center.


With pools, lakes and canals everywhere in South Florida, knowing how to swim can be critical to safety. Miami-Dade and Broward County Parks have a variety of swim lessons for all ages and skill levels, many available at low or no cost. Find more details below:

The Humane Society of Broward County is in dire need of newspapers. The Shelter is full up with kittens and pocket pets (bunnies, gerbils, hamsters, etc.) and newspaper is used to line their cages. It helps keep the animals warm and also keeps the cages sanitary because the paper is absorbent and disposable.

If you have a collection of papers in your home waiting to go the recycle bin, HSBC asks that you PLEASE donate them to the shelter instead. Even one issue can help a handful of pets.

See more about the Humane Society and pets that are up for adoptions here.

American Heart Association / Go Red For Women

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.

THE AHA says lowering your kids' sodium intake now can protect their health later. Visit for tips on how to stay healthy through the school year.
