ORLANDO, Fla. (WKOW) -- Experts with the National Hurricane Center have a message for residents living in hurricane-prone areas: Don't tape your windows.
Hurricane center officials are joining with a consumer advocate group Tuesday at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Florida, to encourage residents to skip taping their windows when a hurricane is heading their way. Officials believe it leads to a false sense of security.
Experts say residents in hurricane zones instead should use hurricane shutters and impact-resistant windows.
Hundreds of meteorologists and emergency management officials are in Orlando for the weeklong hurricane conference.
