The summer season conjures up images of fun in the sun and relaxation, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas. Hurricanes are an unfortunate reality for those of us living along the Gulf Coast, and 2022 is predicted to be an active storm season. Even though hurricane season doesn’t officially begin until June 1st, there has already been a tropical disturbance reported in the Gulf near Florida. With this in mind, now is the perfect time to get you, your family, and your home prepped and ready for storm season.
Create a Hurricane Kit
When the storm warnings start, people flock to the stores and supplies can quickly dwindle. Rather than deal with the rush, prep your hurricane kit now so you’re stocked and ready to go. Here are some must-haves for your hurricane kit:
Prepare Your Home
When the storm seems imminent, it’s time to batten down the hatches and get the exterior and interior of your home ready to go. In addition to gathering your important documents and valuables and locking them in a safe deposit box, waterproof file cabinet or safe, you need to get your home storm-ready. Follow these home-prep tips:
Prepare For Evacuation
Despite our best efforts, in some cases local officials give the order for evacuation. If an evacuation is called in your area it’s important to know your plan ahead of time so that you can act quickly:
When it comes to avoiding damage and danger during hurricane season, preparedness is key. Charge your family with trying the 10 minute evacuation challenge to ensure that you can be ready to go in moments in the event of an evacuation.
