Tips to be prepared for hurricane season

Hurricane season in Texas can be a challenging time, but it's not insurmountable. With prudent preparation and a proactive attitude, you can be ready to weather any storm. Here are some practical steps you can take to prepare for the hurricane season.

  1. It's crucial to have a disaster plan in place. This should include evacuation routes, communication plans with family members, and a list of essential items you would need to carry. Remember, your safety is paramount and having a well-thought-out plan can be the key to staying safe during a hurricane.

  2. Preparing your home is another vital step. Reinforce your house’s weakest points, like windows, doors, and roof, to minimize damage from high winds. Trim any dangling branches from trees near your home that may potentially cause damage during a hurricane. Also, consider investing in a generator for power outages and ensure that it's functioning properly.

  3. Keeping abreast of weather updates is also essential. Invest in a battery-powered or hand-cranked radio for this purpose. It can provide you with essential updates even if you lose power. Also, sign up for alerts from your local weather station or download a reliable weather app on your smartphone.

  4. Prepare an emergency kit stocked with essentials like bottled water, non-perishable food items, medications, important documents, cash, and other necessities. This could make a significant difference in the case of an emergency evacuation.

Remember, preparation is the key to successfully navigating hurricane season in Texas. If you take these steps to prepare for a hurricane and safeguard your home, you'll be in a better position to weather the storm confidently and safely. So let's face the hurricane season with courage and readiness because we Texans are known for our resilience!
