Palmdale, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2010
The worldwide leading tarps supplier Tarps Plus has ordered containers of hurricane tarps to be stock piled in the Gulf of Mexico Coast region for the 2010 hurricane season. Due to the tarp shortage and aftermath of the 2009 hurricane season, the tarp juggernaut is shipping truck loads of tarps to a Texas holding area. In the event of a hurricane, the tarps will be centrally located to be distributed to hurricane victims more rapidly. Hurricane experts predict that the 2010 hurricane season will have high activity.
U.S. meteorologists state that the Atlantic basin hurricane season anticipate the current El Nino event to dissipate by the 2010 hurricane season and warm sea surface temperatures are likely to continue being present in the tropical and North Atlantic during 2010. Warm waters are the fuel that is needed to create a hurricane type atmosphere.
The current Gulf of Mexico has also caused some slight demand of tarps to the area as well. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill has spewed millions of gallons since late May 2010. The spill has hiked up the prices of tarps as well as other oil based products. The spill has also damaged the Gulf of Mexico fishing and tourism industries. Over twenty billion dollars has been granted by BP. The fund will be created over four years, at $5 billion a year. It is backed by the collateral of $20 billion in company assets in the United States.
During the clean-up of the 2009 hurricane season many parishes and towns were left with hurricane victims without tarps or water. When tarps and supplies were delivered, they were stuck in gridlock on the main highways veins leading to the areas that needed them. A spokes person from Tarps Plus stated, “This inventory of tarp covers should cut delivery times by forty percent.”
