Is the complacency about Hurricanes back?

This is a good topic to make a blog and I know many responses about this important theme will come. Because there has been a drought in terms of Major Hurricanes striking the U.S since 2008, there may be complacency among many people in the U.S coast. My take is to be prepared no matter how many years nothing has occurred in your area because you never know how mother nature will have instored. What do all think about this?

Here in Puerto Rico after the recent hits and near misses,the people are much more aware of what is going on and are preparing well ahead of the peak of the season. There are many activities by the civil defense and private firms to educated the population about how to prepare and much more people are attending those.

Quoting TropicalAnalystwx13:
At least here along the coast of North Carolina, complacency hasn't ever been, and isn't, a problem. In fact, you'd probably hear more about residents being scared instead of them being unconcerned about a hurricane strike.
People in Raleigh had already forgotten about Fran.

It really depends on geographical differences, I think. With different people come different ideologies and mindsets.

I think those of us who have worked the prep and recovery never get complacent but the average person seems a little complacent this year. Florida has dodged bullets mostly, for the last few years. This automatically makes people complacent. I know I tell all my clients to at least review their plans and check their kits.

I dont know , I think the people of New York and New Jersey won't forget Sandy in a hurry even though she was not a major !

I would hope that people who live in vulnerable areas already have their hurricane supplys in . you dont want to be going down to get dry goods 24 hrs before a cane is due to make landfall

Tropicsweatherpr, you ar so right.Many people are thinking we will be fine just another overhyped year.But I don't think so this year.The patterns are setting up for a nasty season.People need to heed the warning signs and be prepared this year.I for one am almost prepared.Couple more things to pick up from the store and I am good to go.
