It's a sign that hurricane season is right around the corner.

Harris County has put up traditional and digital billboards with preparedness messages to countdown to the start of hurricane season on June 1.

Homeland Security and Emergency Management officials teamed up with Clear Channel Outdoor to kick off the campaign in Humble on Monday.

Clear Channel Outdoor is providing the billboards at no charge to the county.

Officials are urging residents to plan ahead and protect yourself, family, and property before disaster strikes.

Preliminary predictions are calling for an above-average 2014 hurricane season.
