It may be tough for some Americans to think about after the unbelievable record-breaking hurricane season last year, but it is time again to start preparing for hurricanes.

Verizon announced Wednesday in a press release that they have completed their "all-digital Florida network" that will help storm-stricken people easily communicate by using their Verizon phones. As you will probably remember, last year there was a huge issue with cell phones not working in devastated areas, leading to a massive civilian effort to help bring back some kind of infrastructure.

This year, to provide extra coverage for storm victims, Verizon has undertaken a huge project. They will have their own back-up generators, in addition to mobile network stations (what they're calling "Cells on Wheels").Verizon has also recently completed a massive $40 million emergency command center that they say will be able to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. If this effort truly helps people communicate with one another in a massive storm, it will be an incredible feat. I can only hope that Sprint, Cingular, and T-Mobile will take on similar projects soon.
