In an effort to equip residents in storm prone regions for the upcoming hurricane season, Home Depot stores in the area will host hurricane preparedness workshops on Saturday, July 27 from 10 - 11:30 a.m.

The events are part of an unprecedented single-day outreach including more than 700 Home Depot stores from the Gulf Coast to New England.   The Home Depot is taking preemptive measures to protect residents from 2013 hurricane activity, which is once again predicted to be above average.
