How To Prepare for a hurricane

Hurricane season (usually lasting from June 1 through November 30) can be a nerve racking time for everyone. Not only for those whose homes are in the path of one, but for families and relatives alike who may worry about those people. Preparedness is not just necessary, but having a plan will help you and your loved ones keep their peace of mind during this stressful time.Watch the news closely, the Weather Channel, so you will know what a hurricane is doing, where it is going. It may be a good idea to evacuate your area beforehand, since traffic will be a problem during a mandatory evacuatuation order. When Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita appeared, all affected areas reported traffic as being stalled to stationary, so DO NOT wait to evacuate at all.
