Officials said it's easy to forget we're in the middle of hurricane season. 

"School just started back, we've got football season that's here, and college football season around the corner, we have farmers who are really busy. This is just a time where our community is focused on a lot of other different things; preparedness is not something we can overlook," said Paige Dukes, Lowndes County public information.

Hurricane season continues until the end of November.
