During the 2005 Atlantic tropical hurricane season 4500 United States citizens lost their lives due to hurricane Katrina and hurricane Rita. You never know when your time is up and here comes the 2006 Atlantic tropical hurricane season, which is said to be a very strong one. Most people do not die in a hurricane from debris flying in the wind, but rather through the storm surge or torrential rain and flooding. Nevertheless many people die during the high points of the decade or two long up-swing in hurricane storm intensity.

The question is do you have a living will and if not, do you live in a region that is prone to Atlantic tropical hurricane strikes? If so it would make sense for you and your family to have a living will; have you given much consideration to this or are you just filling lucky this year?

You never know when your time is up and we all know that the Atlantic tropical hurricane season intensity is increasing. A living will does not cost as much as you might believe and this makes sense to protect your family's assets and insure that the Next Generation will receive your assets safely and without too many taxes or lawyer fees. Please look into a living will if you live in a hurricane prone area and be thinking on this and 2006.
