Palmdale, Ca (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
The NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has announced that 2013 will be a highly active and above average hurricane season, prompting tarps plus a leading US tarps supplier to take action. Tarps plus normally stocks over 250,000 different types of tarps, but in the wake of the NOAA’s forecast, they have increased their inventory by 50%.
Tarps Plus founder and CEO Michael Stein stated, “We usually keep over a quarter million tarps of various types in stock at one time. Since the NOAA made their announcement we have increased our inventory by at least 50%. We feel it’s our responsibility to be able to supply the government with whatever possible needs they may have if they come calling.”
The company has also expanded their operations too Texas in order to be closer towards the hurricane zone areas. The tarp juggernaut boasts over 150,000 tarps in the Gulf region alone. The company strategically put a distribution center just outside the usual hurricane stricken areas but still close enough to assure turnaround times in 12 hours or less.
The typical hurricane tarp is made out of polyethylene and usually of the light duty nature. The typical colors are blue or brown, but can be green or silver. Many hurricane victims find themselves needing tarps after a hurricane has stricken their areas due to roofs being ripped off and subsequent water protection is needed.
Hurricane season starts June 1 and continues until November 30. Tarps plus currently has distribution hubs in California, Texas and Florida. For more information please visit http://www.tarpsplus.com
