NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – On day 7, the final day of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, it’s about taking personal responsibility.
Learn which hurricane hazards could affect you and have a hurricane plan in place.
Remember, no matter what the numbers are in a seasonal outlook, it only take one storm hitting you to make it a bad year.
“Surviving a hurricane is all about planning before the storm arrives,” says Stacy Stewart of the National Hurricane Center.
Hurricane Plan is important to have in place and knowing potential hazards that could affect your family is vital. Know your home’s vulnerability to surges, flooding and wind.
Finding out if you are in a evacuation zone is a good step to knowing what your up against and have an escape route ready to go, if need be.
Assembling a disaster relief kit, non-perishable food items, water and medication for week is great way to be prepared for the worse case scenario.
