Are You Prepared For Hurricane Season?
Ever lived through a hurricane? I live in Florida and hurricane season started a month ago. We’ve been having rain everyday since then which isn’t atypical. It seems like it started a bit early this year. But last year, as many people know, we had hurricane Matthew blow through Florida and up the coast. It was a pretty catastrophic hurricane. Had it hit, I know that my house would have been underwater and a lot of other people would have been underwater as well and it wouldn’t have been a good scene!
So I wanted to point to a website that people can go to if you’re in a region that has hurricanes. It’s the National Hurricane Center website. The site has basic information on what’s going on with tropical storms, cyclones and hurricanes. It has a map and it will show you models of the storm system and what’s going on. It will give you the models and it will tell you what the category of the storm is and how intense it is.
I also suggest looking at the hurricane preparedness page on the same site. It’s got information for you to refer to and think about when you’re in a situation where you may have to evacuate. You may have to get some supplies and have a plan! I also wrote a post about having a bug-out bag which, if there’s any type of disaster, not just a hurricane, is something you can grab and go.
I had to evacuate last year for the first time. I’d never experienced that before. It was quite an ordeal. So I just want to draw your attention to this, not to scare anyone but just be aware, be alert. We do have a lot of planetary changes going on and you just always have to be aware of what’s going on around you at all times!
