Prepare for a Hurricane

What To Do If There Is a Hurricane

Buy flashlight batteries for all flashlights, make sure they are in working condition. Please do not use candles or kerosene lanterns as this can prove to be dangerous.

Have enough batteries for your radio, this may be your only source of information and communication.

If at all possible, buy a Coleman stove or have enough charcoal to use on a grill. This will be used to do outdoor cooking if you have no electricity.

Never let the gasoline tank of your vehicle gets less than half-full when a hurricane is anticipated. Fill up as soon as the hurricane watch is posted. If there is no electricity, gas pumps won’t work.

Store packaged foods which can be prepared without cooking and need no refrigeration. Both gas and electricity may be lost for days, even weeks.

Have clean containers to store enough drinking water for several days. The city water supply may be interrupted or contaminated. Store at least a half-gallon per person a day. Water may be stored in clean bathtubs and cooking utensils.

Have a first aid kit along with incidentals. Be sure to have prescriptions filled in advance.

Secure outdoor objects that might be blown away: toys, lawn furniture, plants, etc.

Stay inside. Many people lose their lives because they were curious. Stay away from the windows. Flying objects or broken glass may be thrown by the storm’s wind.

Don’t be fooled by the “eye” (calm center) of the hurricane. Don’t venture out when the eye of the hurricane passes over. If the calm center passes directly overhead, there will be a lull in the wind lasting from a few minutes to a half hour or more. Remember, on the other side of the eye, winds rise very rapidly to hurricane force and come from the opposite direction.

Beware of broken electric lines. Lines blown down may be live. It is better to cover windows with plywood. Tape will not keep windows from blowing in, but will help the glass from shattering. Tape must be taken of immediately after the storm has hit or passed.

Residents are advised to get in the center of the apartment or closet in case the hurricane hits.

Report potential dangers. Broken gas or water mains and live wires should be reported to authorities as soon as possible.

YOUR LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN POSSESSIONS. CHECK THE EXIT ROUTES. TRY TO LEAVE TOWN BEFORE THE CROWD. TAKE ALL VALUABLE PAPERS WITH YOU.

The Price of Peace of Mind

Picture waking up one morning to find all of your valuables and personal possessions damaged or suddenly gone. Not a pleasant thought, but it can happen in the blink of an eye through no fault of your own – a major windstorm, water damage from a plumbing leak, vandalism. Did you know that the landlord’s insurance won’t cover those losses? Their insurance covers the building where you live, but not your personal belongings. That’s why we recommend that tenants carry rental insurance. The cost is nominal compared to the cost of replacing your valuables.

Renters insurance usually covers two kinds of losses: Property and liability. Property coverage protects your stuff not only at home but also often while you are traveling. Liability protects you financially from claims and lawsuits against you. Some policies also cover theft, family liability and guest medical expenses, and additional living expenses. When you consider that the average renter owns from $30,000 to $35,000 worth of possessions, this small monthly expense just might buy you peace of mind.
