Severe Weather Preparedness
Severe Weather can happen whether you are prepared or not. The following are averages of extreme storms Americans cope with each year:
-10,000 severe thunderstorms
-2 landfalling hurricanes
These storms are the leading cause of $15 Billion worth of damage and about 650 deaths per year.
Some ways to better prepare yourself for these many severe weather situation are discussed here. You will first need to become aware of what kinds of hazardous weather can affect you and how it will impact your home, work, and family. You should check the weather regularly and make sure to have access to sever weather alerts- whether it be an app or a NOAA weather radio. Another step you should take is to organize an emergency supply kit that can include: water & food (3-day supply of each), battery operated radio, first aid kit, flashlight, important documents, matches, etc.
