By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press ORLANDO, FL (AP) -- Officials with the National Hurricane Center have a message for residents living in hurricane-prone areas: Don't tape your windows. Hurricane center officials are joining with a consumer advocate group Tuesday at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando to encourage residents to skip taping their windows when a hurricane is heading their way. They believe it leads to a false sense of security. They say residents in hurricane zones instead should use hurricane shutters and impact-resistant windows. Hundreds of meteorologists and emergency management officials are in Orlando for the weeklong hurricane conference. (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
