Tropical Storm Preparation

6/15/2020 (Permalink)

There is no stopping a tropical storm, but there are measures you can take to be prepared for one.  Between the months of June through November, we cast a close eye on the gulf to observe potential disturbances over the seas.  There are times when a storm forms over a body of water and fails to become anything after a few days, but then there are the ones that form and become what could potentially be trouble ashore.   When the storm hits tropical storm status, it can pack sustaining winds to about 73mph causing heavy rain, power outages, or serious harm.  

What you should know about tropical storms and how to prepare for them?

A tropical storm is a tropical cyclone that has maximum sustained surface winds ranging from 39-73 mph.  Evacuation is not likely during a tropical storm, but there could potentially be a small chance that an order is given.  If there is, be familiar with an evacuation route. 

It’s always a good idea to take have some cash handy.  The ATM could potentially be useless if the power goes out.  A good rule of thumb is to have enough to feed and/or provide your family for two weeks. 

Keep a device that will allow you to stay updated with the local news about the weather conditions.  By having some batteries at hand, this could help electronics running in case the power goes out.  

After the storm has passed by, be sure that the area is clear before going out. Be careful and watch for any downed power lines.  If you are to see any, report this for safety reasons.  

Although this may not be nearly as intense as a hurricane, be careful and prepared.  Need more information about what to do about preparing for a tropical storm?  Give our team a call!
