September 14, 2023 3 minute read

As Hurricane Lee approaches, it's crucial to stay informed and prepared for potential impacts. While the exact path remains uncertain, we're here to provide you with essential information and tips to ensure a safe response. 

  1. Assemble an Emergency Kit:

To safeguard your family during Hurricane Lee, create a well-stocked emergency kit. Include non-perishable food, ample water, medications, flashlights, batteries, and a comprehensive first-aid kit. Protect important documents in a waterproof container.

  1. Secure Your Home:

Strengthen your home's defenses by reinforcing windows and doors using storm shutters or plywood. Bring in outdoor items to prevent them from becoming hazards in high winds, and keep gutters and downspouts clear to avoid flooding.

  1. Create a Family Communication Plan:

Establish a clear family communication plan. Designate an out-of-area contact for all family members to check in with. Ensure everyone is aware of the evacuation plan, including where to go and what to do.

  1. Stay Informed:

Stay updated with the latest local weather information using a NOAA weather radio, smartphone apps, or a battery-powered radio. Follow directives from local authorities and be prepared to evacuate as necessary.

  1. Prepare for Power Outages:

Be power-ready by charging electronic devices and having power banks on hand. Consider backup generators or alternative power sources if available. Choose flashlights over candles to reduce fire risks.

By following these practical Hurricane Lee preparedness tips, you'll not only enhance your readiness for the storm but also ensure the safety and well-being of your loved ones and property.
