Officials plan for potential disasters


Special to the PRESS

What is Cameron County doing to prepare for hurricane season right now?

That question was asked by Cameron County Judge Carlos Cascos to a room full of officials from multiple departments as well as state authorities at the San Benito Municipal Building on Mon­day.

The occasion was an Emergency Management Meeting, held in conjunction with the start of the 2011 hur­ricane season, which began on June 1 and ends on No­vember 30.

Fire Marshal Henry Lopez hosted the event on Monday, June 6 which included vari­ous speakers including Cas­cos, Warning Coordination Meteorologist Barry Gold­smith of the National Weather Service in Brownsville, and Jorge Jalomo of the Texas Department of Public Safety Division of Emergency Man­agement.
