Hurricane Irma is rapidly approaching the coast of Florida

F. Kevin Butler MD, MPH

Chairperson, FPS Disaster Preparedness Committee

Hurricane Irma is rapidly approaching the coast of Florida with possible

landfall later this week. Many in the Tampa Bay area appear to have been

sensitized by the effects of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Locally, grocery

stores have already run out water and stores like Lowe's and Home Depot have

long lines. It's hard to decipher whether this is a prudent response or an

overreaction. (Perceived risk vs. actual risk.) Only time and more information

on the hurricane will answer the question. CLICK HERE to open instructions for the SAMHSA

Behavioral Health Disaster Response App. I hope you find it helpful and

informative. Keep dry and keep safe.
