“We will go over why you should never focus on just the category of the storm along with discussing all of the impacts any tropical cyclone can bring. We will cover the hurricane outlook for the season while emphasizing it only takes one storm to make an impact on your life! At the end we will transition to a community discussion and you can ask any questions you have,” the NWS said.
