We are just days away from Hurricane Florence making landfall on the East Coast. With this Category 4 Hurricane comes the potential for lots of rain and flooding in our area. If you haven’t started to prepare for the worst, then you better start now!
Hurricane supply checklist:
Water, no brainer right? You will want to make sure you have at least 1 gallon per person per day.
Food. Stock up on non-perishable items.
1st Aid Kit
Personal documents ( insurance policies, birth certificates, deed to your home)
How to prepare your home:
Board any windows if you are in an area that is expected to experience strong winds.
Bring any outdoor furniture, grills, potted plants, flags, etc. indoors.
Fill your gas tanks.
Turn your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible.
Make sure all pets are wearing a collar with ID tags.
Make sure their tags are updated with your current phone number.
Have enough food for your pets as well as water.
Do not leave your pets behind if you are forced to evacuate!
