Hurricane season is set to start on Monday – this year the city of Mission is facing different challenges due to the coronavirus outbreak

Mission Emergency Management Coordinator James Cardoza says planning for the sheltering process has been a challenge due to limited capacity rules.

Cardoza says current social distancing restrictions would only allow 125 people into a shelter that could normally hold 500.

He encourages the community to start planning for the hurricane season too by visiting the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready website.
