As hurricane season begins, I join the Governor in encouraging all Texans to take steps to prepare their homes and communities for severe weather.
Severe weather can happen quickly. It is vital to sign up for emergency alerts, review your plans for shelter & evacuation, build an emergency kit, harden your home, and develop a communications plan with your loved ones.
I also encourage you to reach out to your neighbors and friends during these times. My initiative, Texanthropy, is based on the truth that there is nothing more powerful than Texans helping Texans.
