2019 Hurricane Ready Tips

Hurricane Ready this Year

Even with Dorian just passing by the South Florida area, 2019's hurricane season isn't in the clear yet. Florida residents should still be prepared and ready for any disaster. SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North is here to help with these 2019 hurricane ready preparation tips.

2019 Hurricane Ready tips:

  • Be sure to withdraw cash from your bank account before the storm as some banks can be closed for days until power is restored.
  • Invest in a battery powered or hand crank radio to stay up-to-date on what's going on in your area.
  • If you can't stay with friends or family outside of evacuation zones, be aware of your nearest hurricane shelter, and overnight kennels for your furry friends.
  • Having a few camping lanterns will come in handy in the event of any power failures.
  • Fill your vehicle's gas tank and any gas cans ahead of time.
  • Before a storm hits be sure you've stocked up on clean drinking water or bottled water- one gallon per person per day for no less than three days.
  • Fill large freezer bags with water and freeze them with your freezer turned to its coldest setting. If the power goes out, you'll have blocks of ice to preserve things in the fridge and coolers.
  • Unplug TVs, computers, and appliances before the storm to avoid damages to electronics.
  • Consider boarding up your house and going out of town until officials in your area say it's safe to return.

Being Hurricane Ready is the most important skill for a south Florida family. Your hurricane preparation should be complete well before a storm hits.  The American Red Cross has a complete hurricane preparation checklist available here.  SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North hopes you have a safe and damage-free storm season, but should disaster strike, SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North will arrive "faster to your disaster" and make it "like it never happened."
