The problem with disaster safety plans is that people rarely ever think of them until a disaster happens, by which time it’s too late, of course. You don’t have to let that happen to you though, by doing some creative thinking you can put together a plan for disaster safety for you, your family, or even your extended family.
Over the last month, North Carolina has been the wettest it has been in a very long time. I know that April is supposed to be one of the wettest months but thanks to hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael, North Carolina has dealt with enormous amounts of rainfall which has led to flooding all across the state. Areas like North Carolina, Florida, and soon to be Mexico and Texas areas (from Hurricane Willa) are struggling with the widespread wind and flood damage. What are you doing to help?
Hurricanes are NO joke! Until you have lived through one, you can not fully understand the impact a hurricane can make. We live in the middle of North Carolina but back in September of 1996, Hurricane Fran came right through our town. We had trees down everywhere. Power was out for a few weeks for some. Homes and cars were destroyed. THAT was in the MIDDLE of the state. Of course, the coast received a whole lot more damage but even counties inland were devastated by Fran.
