Volume 28  Issue 6


Do you remember 2004?

Whether you’re planning to evacuate or not, here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Ensure you have enough food, water, medications, and other supplies in your survival kit to last at least 2 weeks.
  • Turn refrigerator to coldest setting and keep closed.
  • Turn off propane tanks.
  • Unplug small appliances.
  • Fill bathtub and other containers with water for cleaning and flushing. Additional water is stored for drinking.
  • Cover all windows and other openings with hardened protections. If you do not have manufactured shutters, cut plywood and secure to protect the windows.
  • Close all interior doors and brace outer doors.
  • Select an interior room to use as a safe room.
  • Plan as though you were evacuating and have enough cash on hand to sustain purchasing of gas, food, and other supplies in the days following the storm.
  • If you have a generator, ensure you have enough gas on hand to sustain usage for several days.
  • Ensure you have sufficient medications in case you are confined to your home for several days. Post-storm there may not be any electricity and pharmacies will probably be closed even with a minor storm.
  • Plan to cook on a camp stove or grill in the days immediately after the storm passes.
