Hurricane Irene update

Hurricane Irene continues to track towards the coast of the United States.  Already, tropical storm and hurricane watches have been posted in the Carolinas.  If you live along the coast, please keep tuned to your local media and authorities for more information about the storm.  We here at ClimateYou felt it would be helpful to provide you with some emergency planning lists.  DB and GR
Here are some of the most critical supplies to have on hand, well before a hurricane threatens:
  • At least a 3-day and preferably a 7-day supply of water (one gallon per person per day)
  • Non-perishable food
  • Formula, diapers, and other baby supplies
  • Manual can opener
  • First aid kit
  • Prescription and non-prescription medicines
  • Toiletries
  • Cell phones and battery-powered cell phone chargers
  • Battery-powered radios and flashlights
  • Plenty of batteries
  • Extra cash
  • Blankets, sleeping bags, books, and games (especially if evacuating)
–Develop an evacuation plan, including the criteria for putting your plan into action
–Reserve your room early (the earlier the better)
–If you don’t plan to stay in a hotel or motel, confirm your destination plans (including estimated arrival time) with family or friends
–Fill gas tank (carrying extra gas in cans in the trunk is dangerous)
–Leave early to beat the last-minute rush (and traffic gridlock); waiting too long to leave may prevent you from leaving at all
–Consider offering a ride to neighbors who don’t have a car.
