Polk officials: Start planning now for hurricane season

Bartow, FL --  If buying all your hurricane supplies at once is taxing you budget, Polk County officials have some advice.


Start gathering what you need - now.


With the struggling economy, some residents may believe that it's just "too expensive" to purchase the items they will need to be self-sufficient for five days if a hurricane were to strike Polk County.
