A tropical vacation may sound like the perfect getaway this summer, but it comes with a risk: the Atlantic hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season officially lasts from June 1 to November 30, though most tropical hurricanes develop between May and October. Storms towards the latter part of the season do tend to be bigger and stronger. You can still have a great vacation during these months, but you need to be prepared.

Today, Secretary Pompeo participated in the Organization of American States (OAS) General Assembly in Washington, D.C.

As the OAS celebrates the 70th anniversary of its charter, member states took stock of the important work the OAS has accomplished to advance hemispheric peace, security, human rights, understanding between nations, and prosperity for our societies.
