Hurricane season is here! Are you prepared?


The hurricane season started on June 1st and could be dangerous. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted that there will be three to six major hurricane seasons this year.

With the COVID-19 outbreak still ongoing, there are a few extra things to consider during this year’s hurricane season. For example, you may need to take shelter in a different place. Stores may not be open to purchase food or medicine. But you can take steps to make yourself and your family safer in a storm.

1. Create a inventory checklist.
2. Get the kids involved by doing emergency preparedness fun, not scary.
3. A budget inventory checklist can help you get ready for less money.
4th At your sign, get ready, go with the bags! Secure your travel bag is ready in case you need to leave quickly.
5. Put in supplies for COVID-19 in your travel bag. Add hand sanitizer and face masks for each family member.
6th Keep your important documents, such as your ID card and birth certificate, in a safe and easy to move container.

Remember, when officials tell you to evacuate, don’t hesitate to go!

With these steps, you are stronger and ready for whatever comes your way.
