Survive The Storm
As you may know, hurricane season has already started and it will be sticking around until the end of November. This unpredictable season can affect your travel plans or just a quiet and simple summer at home. If you plan on traveling during hurricane season and are concerned about the weather believe it or not....there’s an app for that. The American Red Cross Association, who we are a proud sponsor of, created an app called Hurricane by American Red Cross to monitor hurricane conditions in your local area, throughout the storm track, and let others know you are safe even if the power is out. The app also allows you to monitor the weather of the destination desired. This is a great app. We recommend to download it and use it throughout the year.
Also, if you haven't done so already, building a hurricane survival kit is essential during this time of year. Especially if you decide to stay home and weather out the storm. Here are some essential items to start a Hurricane Survival Kit:
· Water (one gallon per person, per day)
· None perishable food
· Flashlights and batteries
· First Aid Kit
· Battery powered radio
· Insect repellant
· Moist towelettes
· Manuel can opener
· Change of clothes
The list can go on, but these are some essentials that would make surviving a disastrous hurricane a lot easier.
Have a safe and happy rest of the summer!
