Preparing for Hurricane Season

From now until November, we will have to pay close attention to the weather in Palm Beach County because hurricanes can strike at any time. It's nothing to worry about if you're prepared, so please listen to my tips that will keep you safe from mother nature. Here are a few helpful steps you can take to protect yourself.
  1. Get Your Supplies Together Early: You don't want to get your supplies at the last minute, so be sure to go to the grocery store and stock up on food & water while there isn't a massive rush before the storm. You will probably need more water than you think, so be sure to stock up on extra water. Non-perishable foods will be important, because if you lose power, your grocery store will likely lose power too.
  2. Secure Plan: It's very important to have a plan to protect you and your loved ones. Thinking about an evacuation plan ahead of time will cause less stress for everyone when the time comes to leave or hunker down during a hurricane.
  3. Get Yard Work Done Early: Clearing away branches and limbs or anything that could get airborne is always a good idea before a storm hits. You don't want to be doing this at the last minute because then you would be putting yourself in a dangerous situation.
  4. Bring in Outdoor Items: Similar to clearing branches, you should also clear away lawn furniture or any other items that might be tossed around in high winds. If something is too big to move, make sure it is secure and will not become hazardous if it is thrown off the ground. No object is too small to damage your home or your body during a hurricane.
  5. Have a Good Mobile Weather App: Technology has allowed us to be much safer in situations like hurricanes, so be sure to have a mobile weather app installed on your phone to be aware of what is happening in your area during a storm. Sometimes your phone may be the only working electronic device you have, so be sure that you have helpful apps like the Red Cross or the Weather Channel installed onto your device. You should probably also consider using a portable charging unit. They are very affordable and can be extremely helpful in these situations.
Hopefully these tips will help keep you safe during hurricane season in Palm Beach County.
