Now that the 2010 hurricane season is rapidly approaching, I thought that it might be helpful to post some information that could be useful to my readers and help them prepare their homes for the possible arrival of a hurricane. (People in Minnesota and Wyoming can probably ignore this post).
NOAA - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has created a brochure that contains basic information to assist you in preparing your home and family for a natural disaster like a hurricane. You can download a copy at the following link: Download hurricane_safety.pdf
You can also click on the following links to go to sites that also offer important information about hurricane preparedness. Some are national, some are state sponsored, and others may be local. The main idea of all of these sites is for you to make plans and preparations now. When a storm is a day away, that could be too late.
I hope that you will find these links useful. You may wish to bookmark one or more of them so you can easily access them in the event that a hurricane or other natural disaster hits our area.
In the future I will try to bring you news of any storms that might affect Florida and the surrounding areas. We have been lucky for several years, but you never know when our luck could run out. Hopefully, far in the future.
