Dear Canadians,

You are receiving this email because you are registered with the Government of Canada's Registration of Canadians Abroad Service. Please share the following information with all the Canadian citizens that you know.

The hurricane season extends from June 1 to November 30. Tropical depressions and storms that may develop into hurricanes occur in the North Atlantic and Northeast Pacific oceans.

For the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) is predicting 9-15 named storms, 4-8 of which could become hurricanes, including 1-3 of category 3, 4, or 5, on the Saffir-Simpson Scale.

The key to hurricane or tropical storm protection is preparation. We encourage you and your family to review your personal safety practices. By taking sensible measures before, during and after a hurricane, many lives can be saved and property damage averted.

A hurricane preparedness plan includes three basic elements that are important in the threat of any severe weather event: 1) maintain a disaster or emergency supply kit; 2) secure your home and property; and 3) have a safe place to go in the event of an evacuation or prolonged utility outage.

Keep informed by listening to the latest warnings and advisories on radio, television or web sites. Hurricane Centers will issue and update these when necessary. It is also important to follow the advice of local authorities and emergency response personnel.

We would encourage you to visit the following web sites where further information is available, on hurricanes specifically and emergency preparedness in general. Please visit www.travel.gc.ca and www.nhc.noaa.gov for additional information on hurricane preparedness.

Chers Canadiens,

Vous recevez ce message parce que vous vous �tes inscrits aupr�s du MAECI � l'aide du syst�me d'inscription des Canadiens � l'�tranger. Nous vous serions gr� de bien vouloir faire part de l'information suivante � tous les citoyens canadiens se trouvant au sein de votre organisation, de votre r�gion ou de votre secteur.

La saison des ouragans s'�tend du 1er juin au 30 novembre. Les d�pressions tropicales et les temp�tes qui pourraient devenir des ouragans se produisent dans le nord de l'oc�an Atlantique et le nord-est de l'oc�an Pacifique.

Pour cette saison, la NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) pr�voit qu'il y ait 9-15 temp�tes qui porteront un nom, dont 4-8 pourraient devenir des ouragans, y compris 1-3 de cat�gorie 3, 4, ou 5 sur l'�chelle de Saffir-Simpson.

La protection contre un ouragan ou une temp�te tropicale se base sur la pr�paration. Nous vous encourageons, ainsi que votre famille, � revoir vos pratiques de s�curit� personnelles. La prise de mesures appropri�es avant, pendant et apr�s un ouragan permet de sauver de nombreuses vies et �viter d'importants d�g�ts mat�riels.

Le plan de pr�paration � un ouragan comporte trois �l�ments de base qui s'appliquent ainsi � n'importe quelle autre menace li�e au temps violent. Ces �l�ments sont les suivants : 1) pr�paration d'une trousse d'approvisionnement en cas d'urgence ou de catastrophe; 2) s�curiser votre maison et votre propri�t�; 3) d�signation d'un endroit s�curitaire o� vous pourrez vous rendre en cas d'�vacuation ou d'interruption prolong�e de services.

Soyez attentifs � la radio, la t�l�vision ou l'internet pour recevoir les plus r�cents avertissements ou avis de s�curit�. Les centres de pr�vision d'ouragan �mettront ces avis et les mettront continuellement � jour au besoin. Il est important aussi de suivre les conseils des autorit�s locales et du personnel d'intervention d'urgence.

Nous vous encourageons � visiter les sites web suivants pour des informations suppl�mentaires sur les ouragans ainsi que des conseils pratiques sur les pr�paratifs en cas d'urgence en g�n�ral. www.voyage.gc.ca et www.nhc.noaa.gov (anglais seulement).
