Preparing for Hurricanes
By: Allen Lyle
One of the joys (add sarcastic tone here) of living along the Gulf Coast is contending with hurricanes. Don’t misunderstand…I love living here! But these storms are just downright inconvenient!
This week we’re watching Hurricane Ike, a potentially dangerous storm that could make its way to our area. Let me take this moment to remind any of you who live along the coast to prepare NOW for a hurricane.
Putting together a disaster preparedness kit is just good sense, and you don’t want to be doing this at the last minute. I realized about a day or two before Hurricane Gustav was coming that I wasn’t prepared, so I was at the grocery story at 6 a.m. stocking up.
So, what should you include? Take a look at our article on Preparing for the Worst for a list of everything you’ll need.
