Ten Things To Do In Preparation Of A Hurricane
August 28, 2019

Three Reasons You May Want To Evacuate

Every hurricane does not warrant a mandatory evacuation, but that does not mean that you should not evacuate. Here are three things to consider when deciding whether to weather the storm. 

  1. Location, Location, Location - Are you close to a body of water? Perhaps, it’s a good idea to consider evacuating, or at least developing an evacuation plan. A storm does not have to rise to the status of hurricane to dump massive amounts of water, a tropical storm can wreak major havoc in this department. It is important to look at your home and its proximity to water. It is also important to keep in mind the type of water you will likely encounter. This will likely be fast moving water, and six inches of swift moving water is enough to overcome the average adult. Simply put, the risk of drowning increases under these circumstances. Consider evacuating if you are near water. 
  2. Special Medical Needs - If you or your loved one has special medical needs, consider evacuation prior to a hurricane or major tropical storm. Sometimes, the medical attention they need may not be available during a storm. Typically, emergency services during these times are limited, and pharmacies may be closed. It is important to stock up on your loved one’s medical supplies and evacuate to a place that has the necessary medical resources. 
  3. Stress and Self Care - These catastrophic events can be overwhelming and stressful. If you find yourself stressed out and your job is closed for a couple of days, it may be a good idea to evacuate or take a mini vacation. The reality is that dealing with major event can be stressful, taking some time away may bring a little clarity.
