If you think that hurricane season is getting rougher each year you’re not alone. Not only are more powerful storms starting earlier in the season, but that are bringing with that a more devastating path of destruction. Thanks to early warning systems, we can be prepared when a tropical storm turns into a hurricane. Since Hurricane Katrina, folks are smart enough not to take any chances when the evacuation order comes in. Even if that order never comes, there are also important steps that people can take to prepare themselves. The bottom line is prepare for the worst.
Most federal agencies recommend that you stock up with enough supplies so that you can go at least three days without power if you had to. This means plenty of fresh water and canned goods for food. Imagine not having a stove or fridge to keep things heated or cold. If you want to try a little experiment see how long you can go in a weekend without using any power. You might get away with that during the day but what happens when the sun goes down? Will you be ready for the next big storm in Charlotte?
If there is one thing you can count on with an approaching storm is that folks will race out to the nearest Charlotte grocery store and clear the shelves of water, batteries and other non perishable items. Don’t get caught up in that mess. You should always have some emergency rations on hand just in case. It is better to have and not need than to need and not have.
Getting prepared for a storm is one thing but how prepared are you for after a storm. Specially, how prepared are you for the clean-up? In a neighborhood with a lot of fallen trees, the most popular person becomes the one with the chain saw. You could go a step further by having the number of a professional team of junk haulers on stand-by. This number should go right alongside all your other home maintenance type of workers such as handymen, plumbers and electricians.
