Before a hurricane

Before a Hurricane:

All proper preparations should be done before the hurricane hits to ensure that you aren't left without certain necessities. When a major hurricane is headed toward an area, people tend to panic, and stores run out of essential staples like water, batteries, and flashlights very quickly.

Truthfully, if you live in a hurricane-prone area, you should always be stocked with the staples, so you never have to worry about the panicking crowds. You should also be prepared if you're traveling to an area that may be affected by these severe storms.

  • Make a Plan: When an emergency strikes, you and your family must have a plan in case you get separated. Agree on a common meeting place that is easy to find and a method of contact. Additionally, you'll want to know the safest place to hunker down during the storm, so stake out a location away from any windows when you arrive where you can take shelter.
  • Create a disaster kit: Whether you're visiting a hurricane-prone area or you live there, you should prepare a disaster kitin case of a sudden storm. This should consist of water (1 gallon per person per day for three days), three days’ worth of food, batteries, flashlights, a first aid kit, a cell phone with back up charger, a help whistle, garbage bags, pliers, a manual can opener, and any critical medications. Your valuable documents should be tucked away in a waterproof container as well.
  • Fill all of your gas tanks: This should be done as soon as possible because gas is usually one of the first things to run out before a hurricane.
