Charter is committed to supporting the communities where our customers and employees live and work, especially in times of need and crisis. For states that often are in the pathways of hurricanes, this means keeping our customers informed, safe, and connected during these dangerous storms.

Texas bore the brunt of one of the most severe storms in recent years when Hurricane Harvey caused floods that displaced more than 30,000 people in the Houston metro area and along the coastline. The threat of another Category 4 hurricane is always looming, which is why Spectrum News is continually reminding Texans about what they can do to remain prepared. Our Spectrum News weather teams provide storm preparedness checklists and useful guidance to help viewers prepare and stay safe. By using state-of-the-art technology, our expert meteorologists provide precise, hyperlocal, and up-to-date forecasts as storms develop and are equipped with the tools necessary to inform communities of severe weather events. 

Spectrum News 1 Texas Chief Meteorologist Burton Fitzsimmons provides viewers with the most essential items to keep in an emergency grab bag.
