But heading into a new storm season, the state has enacted only a few changes - the largest aimed at protecting seniors in nursing homes.

Evacuees should also carry a supply kit in their vehicles that includes critical documents such as Social Security cards, passports, copies of prescriptions and insurance forms.

However, with what was Tropical Storm Alberto carving a path from the Panhandle of Florida to MI, and hurricane season starting June 1, New Jersey is expected to be in for another above-average year.

Hurricane season is here.

Also, the ocean water temperature pattern in the Atlantic Basin is very different right now from what we saw throughout the season last year, which also suggests that this year will be a much quieter season than last year.

"We take care of people up to a certain point", says Martin Senterfitt, director of emergency services of the county of Monroe.

"Coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them".

Subtropical storm Alberto, which made landfall in Florida on Monday, was the first named storm of 2018.


The head of the Disaster Office further notes that with the formation of the sub-tropical storm Alberto before the hurricane season and the damage it has caused in the U.S. it may become necessary to have year-round hurricane preparation. For instance, of the 55,000 homes in the keys, more than 1,000 were reduced to their foundations and 3,000 suffered major damage.

The houses of the more affluent have been hit by Irma, especially in Key West, the last island of the chain.

Many companies and shops now have signs "Help Wanted" (recruits) on their fronts.

McManus said the agency is processing the remaining extension requests as quickly as possible and that it will begin conducting more site visits after June 1 to facilities that have implemented their plans but have not yet been inspected.

"I get a lot of applicants, not anyone from this area". "You can get ready for the season and that way you reduce the stress and anxiety of waiting until the last minute, when the wind is beginning to blow".

In Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria laid bare the decrepit state of the territory's electrical grid. The flooding in central Cuba caused by torrential rainfall in the wake of Alberto, killed four people and prompted the evacuation of tens of thousands. The government filled warehouses with spare parts and prepared agreements that will allow for immediate assistance if the electrical grid collapses again. It is still recovering from damage estimated at more than $200 million.

Nearly all of the 1,800 inhabitants fled.
