4 ways to prepare your tech for hurricane season

(BPT) - Hurricane season is here. Following a record-breaking 2020 season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts yet another equally – if not, more – active hurricane season this year with at least 13 to 20 named storms.

Hurricanes can cause major damage to homes, businesses and critical communications infrastructure. Storms can knock out cable and fiber connections, as well as cell towers, making it difficult to receive emergency updates, track community response, and access critical financial and health information. While it’s hard to know where and when a hurricane may strike, residents and businesses in disaster-prone areas can weather the storm with a few simple steps.
