JUNE 1 – NOVEMBER 30.2021
Now is the time for all of us to be well prepared for hurricane season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts an above-normal season with 13 to 20 named storms. In addition to the standard supplies, we are encouraging everyone to learn from the experiences of the winter storm back in February. If the power is out and you can’t leave your home for several days and businesses that you regularly rely on are also closed, you may not be able to receive critical supplies like doctor prescribed medications and oxygen tanks, or even dialysis. If you are unable to have extra supplies on hand or if you can’t receive critical services, then you may want to seriously consider including in your plan a place to temporarily relocate to in advance of an impending storm. Know in advance where you will go and make sure that people on the receiving end also know to expect you.
Here is a link to NOAA’s website and their recent post on hurricane preparedness for 2021:
