Hurricane

Hurricane is a natural hazard. It develops at sea. When it reaches land and destroys buildings and kills people, it can be described as a disaster.

BEFORE A HURRICANE:

  1. Have a disaster plan.
  2. Have a pet plan. Before a storm threatens, contact your veterinarian or local humane society for information on preparing your pets for an emergency.
  3. Board up windows.
  4. Bring in outdoor objects that could blow away.
  5. Make sure you know which county or parish you live in.
  6. Know where all the evacuation routes are.
  7. Prepare a disaster supplies kit for your home and car. Have enough food and water for at least 3 days. Include a first aid kit, canned food and a can opener, bottled water, battery-operated radio, flashlight, protective clothing and written instructions on how to turn off electricity, gas, and water.
  8. Have a NOAA weather radio handy with plenty of batteries, so you can listen to storm advisories.
  9. Have some cash handy. Following a hurricane, banks and ATMs may be temporarily closed.
  10. Make sure your car is filled with gasoline.
