Today's topic for Hurricane Preparedness Week is "Develop an Evacuation Plan". One of the first things you will need to find out is whether or not you live in an storm surge evacuation area. If you do live in one of the zone areas, the next thing is where will you go and how will you get there. Many coastal areas have set evacuation routes to keep traffic flowing as smooth as possible. You do not need to travel long distances to evacuate, especially if you have family or friends who do not live in an evacuation zone. Also with evacuations, you need to account for your pets as well, because most storm shelters do not accept pets, so be sure to have a plan of action ready. The following links shows maps of evacuation zones and national storm surge maps. Tuesday's topic will be on "Secure an Insurance Check-Up".
Today is both the start of the Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season and the first day of Hurricane Preparedness Week. Today's topic is "Determine Your Risk". Not only those who live near coastal areas where these storms occur, but areas well inland can also be impacted greatly by hurricanes. Flooding, winds, and tornadoes can also impact areas inland from hurricanes. This graphic shows the different risks from hurricanes. The U.S. has not been impacted by a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) since Wilma way back in October 2005 and it is overdue. Folks along the coast likely become complacent that major hurricanes can not affect them, but all it take is one storm! Tomorrow's topic will be on "Develop an Evacuation Plan".
Thoughts on major weather events, severe weather events, and/or changes to the company.
