Be Prepared for Hurricane Season!

Hurricane season is upon us and here on the Gulf Coast, we take it seriously! The CDC gives some tips on what to do when a hurrican watch is issued: 

 

  • Fill your automobile's gas tank.
  • If no vehicle is available, make arrangements with friends or family for transportation.
  • Fill your clean water containers.
  • Review your emergency plans and supplies, checking to see if any items are missing.
  • Tune in the radio or television for weather updates.
  • Listen for disaster sirens and warning signals.
  • Prepare an emergency kit for your car with food, flares, booster cables, maps, tools, a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, sleeping bags, etc.
  • Secure any items outside which may damage property in a storm, such as bicycles, grills, propane tanks, etc.
  • Cover windows and doors with plywood or boards or place large strips of masking tape or adhesive tape on the windows to reduce the risk of breakage and flying glass.
  • Put livestock and family pets in a safe area. Due to food and sanitation requirements, emergency shelters cannot accept animals.
  • Place vehicles under cover, if at all possible.
  • Fill sinks and bathtubs with water as an extra supply for washing.
  • Adjust the thermostat on refrigerators and freezers to the coolest possible temperature.

Hi Maggie,  Good tips for those living in the hurricane threat areas.  I would not have thought about turning the ref & freezers to the coolest temps but that is a good tip.
