I realize this might be to late for some, but Hurricane season is not over
until the beginning of November, or when the oceans cool off, since we have
had very hot days, it is going to take longer for the oceans to get back to
Anyway, some safety tips for everyone.
First: Make sure you have an evacuation plan or other location to go just in
case you need to evacuate, have 911 ready or you local call center for
Hurricane Evacuations, should you not have anyone to help you get out, they
will come for you. Do not be a hero and stay with the house, a house can be
replaced your life and those of your loved ones including animals are not
Let friends, neighbors, family know were you are going to be so that they
Second: Make sure that during the storms shut down all electrical equipment,
if you have a computer shut it off. If you have a cell phone have it ready,
these are times when old fashioned landlines are the best, because if the
cable goes and the cell phone towers go, at least you can call on your phone
if you can.
Third: Make sure you have all medications in water proof zip lock bags or
containers. Make sure you dogs/cats food are also in waterproof containers.
Make sure this is part of your evacuation baggage should you need to take it
at a moments notice.
If you are in an area where you may not be evacuated, make sure you have
enough medications, food, candles, batteries generators, make sure all smoke
detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are working, once the hurricane or
nasty weather comes in you need to be prepared.
Your baggage should also have change of clothes for one or 2 days just in
case, phone book.
