More than 85 large wildfires are ripping across the West Coast, from California to Oregon and Washington. In the Southeast, people are just beginning to recover from Hurricane Sally, while more storms are brewing in the Atlantic. And the Midwest continues to recover from the recent derecho.

Severe weather and natural disasters can occur anywhere — sometimes with little warning. The FTC's site, Dealing with Weather Emergencies, has practical tips to help you prepare for, deal with, and recover from a weather emergency. It's mobile-friendly, so easy to get to when and where you need it.

This is a free service provided by the Federal Trade Commission.
