Helping you Survive a Hurricane
We have spoken often how important it is to evacuate when a hurricane is headed our way. In a number of blogs we have explained how vital it is to prep then get out! But there are a number of people who think they can out wait a hurricane. Some people are set on not leaving their home and their precious, irreplaceable belongings. To those people, I have this special blog just for you! Expect to stay bunkered down from a couple of hours to 12 hours during a large slowing moving hurricane. When Winds reach 40 MPH, follow these instructions: NEVER use candles or have any open flame while the wind is blowing. Stay away from unprotected windows. Don’t give into temptation to see what’s happening through it. If power blinks off and on, turn off all of the circuit breakers except the one that powers a lamp in an internal part of your house. Put any food you’re going to want to eat during a storm in coolers. If you rely on an elevator to get to your safe spot, you need to go there now. You do not want to be stuck in the elevator if the power goes out. Call your emergency contact to let them know where you are and how you are doing. This is NOT the safest course of action in dealing with a hurricane. It would be best to follow our prepping suggestions in Ways to Protect Losses before a Hurricane Strikes and Be Financially Prepared for Hurricane Season, double check everything with our Home Inventory Checklist, and then Evacuate. However, if worse comes to it, please educate yourself before the a hurricane hits!
