How to prepare for hurricanes ? Here are some tips

How to prepare for hurricanes ? Here are some tips


How powerful can hurricanes be ?

Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale has no upper hand, on paper. But in theory, winds from a powerful hurricane could blow the scale out of water, scientists say. There is no such thing as Category 6 storm, in part because once winds reach Category 5 status, it does't matter what you call it, it's really, really bad.

Hurricane Andrew was, at the time of its occurrence in August 1992, the costliest hurricane in United States History. This category 5 hurricane hit Florida on August 16, 1992. With winds up to 175 MPH it caused havoc on lands leading to 26 direct and 39 indirect fatalities, total damage $26.5 Billion.

Hurricane preparation checklist:
  • Stay informed - Radio TV...
  • Use hurricane shutters or board up windows and doors with 5/8 inch plywood
  • Bring outside items in if they could be picked by wind.

  • Reinforce the garage doors
  • Turn the refrigerator to its coldest setting in case power goes off

Best preparation I made was moving from Slidell Louisiana to Austin Tx two years ago. Actually moved to be close to grandkids but being away from the potential of hurricanes has been sweet. We got flooded in Katrina so I have had enough and didn't want to go through the evacuation hassle ever again.
