On June 1, 2023, the hurricane season began. Taking measures now can help you avoid a situation that could endanger your life later.
Various predictions have been made for this year, but action is to be expected. Approximately 14 tropical storms, seven hurricanes, and three major hurricanes have occurred annually since 1990.
Everyone in South Florida should be prepared. Making a plan, assembling a kit, and staying informed are the three fundamental stages that can help you get started.
Create an evacuation strategy so that you and the people you care about will know what to do and where to go in the event of a hurricane. Create a communication strategy and give it to family and friends. Include a handwritten list of contacts.
Create an emergency supply kit that includes three to five days' worth of food and water, batteries, a phone charger, a flashlight, prescription drugs, and cash. There is never too much water. Consider allowing at least one gallon per person every day.
Be aware of the threats associated with a hurricane's rain and wind, and pay attention to weather forecasts and advisories.
You might also consider adding impact windows and doors to your house, cataloging your belongings, and setting up an insurance checkup.
