Getting Your Family Prepared for A Natural Disaster
Our family lives in Virginia, about an hour from the beach. While it does not happen all that often, there are times when tropical storms and hurricanes wreak havoc on our community. On August 23, 2011, we had a 5.9 magnitude earthquake 47 miles from our home. The floor literally MOVED. On August 27, 2011, our area was hit with Hurricane Irene that did billions of damage up and down the East Coast. Our family was not prepared for the earthquake (this isn’t California you know!) but we were prepared for the hurricane, as tropical storms and hurricanes are expected.
“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.”
Regardless of where you live, it pays to have an emergency preparedness plan in place for your family. Check out the Hurricane Preparedness article that we did for Ready.gov for some great tips and downloadable lists to keep your family safe!
