Hurricane Preparedness Month Part 1
The week of May 6 - May 12 is known as Hurricane Preparedness Week. This week is dedicated to preparing for a tropical storm or a hurricane. Here are some steps to follow to prepare yourself each day this week.
1. Find out today what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live, and then start preparing now for how to handle them. Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem.
2. Create an evacuation plan to follow in case of an emergency storm. Make sure to have it in writing and on a mobile device.
3. Assemble disaster supplies. You’re going to need supplies not just to get through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family a minimum of one week. Electricity and water could be out for at least that long. You’ll need extra cash, a battery-powered radio and flashlights. Many of us have cell phones, and they all run on batteries. You’re going to need a portable, crank or solar powered USB charger
