Hurricane Season Begins—Are You Ready?

Photo of Oil rigs with standby boatThe damage left by Hurricane Katrina was devastating, and even after 10 years, Louisiana is still recovering. Remembering this deadly storm always brings on the anxiety that another big storm could roll through at any time, but the law makers of Louisiana are trying to help. They held a sales tax holiday on Saturday May 30th and the 31st.

All items that could be used for hurricane preparedness, up to $1,500, were tax free as hurricane season got underway. Batteries, coolers, portable radios, and flashlights are just a few of the items that are included on the list of qualifying products, and though the deals may be over for now, hurricane season begins on June 1st and ends on November 30th.
