A hurricane can cause widespread devastation during and after the strom hits. Planning and preparation are key for staying safe and recovering quickly if damage is left behind.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers the following tips on how to surive a hurricane.

  • Stay informed through emergency notifications.
  • Plan for an evacuation by creating a family emergency communication plan.
  • Stock up on emergency supplies by adding a few items each week or month.
  • Take action to protect your property against wind and water damage.
  • Decide to stay or evacuate depending on what local authorities advise.
