Barely a week into the Atlantic hurricane season, we’ve already seen our first named storm of the year — Tropical Storm Alex — form and dissipate, which means it’s time for Louisianans to get prepared.

Maybe you want to know how to pack a go-bag, when you need to evacuate or how to safely leave your home if you don’t have a car.

Maybe you're wondering where to find local weather updates and how to keep track of storms as they form in the Gulf.

Maybe you're interested in seeing more coverage about mental health after hurricanes or the status of local utilities as we gear up for more storms.

We at WWNO and WRKF want to know your questions as we anticipate another “above-average” hurricane season this year.

Your questions will help guide our newsroom’s coverage over the course of the 2022 hurricane season, which runs from June 1st through November 30th.

We'll also ask for your contact information, and if you'd be willing to talk with a reporter for a story in the future.

In the meantime, here's something to get you started: information on important documents to gather in case you need to file a FEMA or insurance claim down the line.
