How to be prepared for Hurricanes!
With Sandy creeping up the coast there are many concerned parties who don’t know what to do in the case of a hurricane. Many of these locations haven’t been hit with a hurricane in years!
Here, at Myshopangel we want to make sure everyone stays safe during such a natural disaster, so here are some tips on how to be prepared:
- Take precaution and gather information: Find out when the weather is expected to hit your area, what type of damage may happen, who to call, and of course try to be aware of all evacuation notices.
- Create a hurricane preparedness plan. Come up with a safe meeting space for you and your family in the case of an evacuation or emergency. Pet owners also have to think of a place where their furry friends will be safe. Always make sure your contacts are up to date in case you need to communicate with your work, school, and other relatives,
- In the case that you do not evacuate be careful of tornados that are spawned by hurricanes, and of course the calm of the storm, or the eye of the storm.
- And finally always make sure you have a supply kit. General items include batteries, AM/FM Radio, Water, Non-Perishable foods, Flashlights, and Blankets. And of course Charge your Cell Phones!
