I remember the first time I actually encountered my first major storm. I was in Tuscaloosa in '99 and doing a remote for a car dealership. It was a beautiful day outside and all of a sudden, it got dark as clouds came over the sky. We made the call to go inside the building and wait whatever was happening outside.

Fast forward to about thirty minutes later, the storm was over, and we all went back outside again. We found out a little later that a major tornado had come through and unfortunately, there were close to twenty lives lost due to the storm. This has always stayed in the back of my mind. After I moved to Lake Charles, we all saw the toll that Hurricane Katrina took, and then Rita here in Lake Charles. I realized that talking on the radio is relevant when you're giving out vital information and have something to say. As we go into this week facing Marco and Laura, we don't know what is ahead. However, we are prepared to make sure you all are covered.

If this is your first bout with a major hurricane, there could be a lot of water damage, and I remind you all to be careful if you're out and driving. Many assume that roads they normally travel are safe, when in actuality, the water may be deeper than you can see. This will cause many vehicles to be totaled and left on the side of the road.

We are ready to make sure you all are covered. If you have not download our app, make sure you do so. This will allow you to receive alerts from us on the latest weather updates. It will also allow you to continue to listen to us if the power happens to go out during the storms.

Make sure you get to the stores and pick up some non-perishable items like canned goods with easy-to-open lids. Also cold cuts, water, tissue, and flash lights with plenty of batteries. It doesn't hurt to make a withdrawal or two in case you have to leave the area for safer grounds. Keep us with you so you will be well aware of the conditions and things happening in Lake Charles and the surrounding area. Do what you need to do to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe.
