Hurricane Preparation and Recovery Commodity Guides

Hurricane Preparation and Recovery Commodity Guides

People who live and work in the Southeastern United States are unfortunately familiar with the devastation and loss of life and property that can accompany a hurricane event. While hurricanes have always been a threat to the Southeast, with an average of over two strikes per year since 1900, the threat posed by hurricanes is growing. Recent studies suggest that as ocean temperatures continue to rise, hurricane intensity is increasing. Hurricanes of the future will likely be slower-moving, higher category hurricanes that produce destructive winds and flooding.

To help producers remain resilient and productive in the face of this threat, the USDA Southeast Climate Hub, along other USDA agencies and university Extension experts, developed 23 commodity guides to help you prepare for and recover from hurricane events.
