Hurricane Safety Measures
Posted on Oct 4 , 2013
Just when we thought we had passed the safety mark that would end hurricane season, Tropical Storm Karen comes into the gulf threatening the gulf coast. Since we live in Louisiana, we would like to think of ourselves as pros (not possessive) when dealing with horrific storms, especially after the lessons we learned from Katrina. I have learned that we never seem to be prepared no matter how little or big the storm might be. As the storm grows closer, please prepare yourself and your family as officials would instruct you to do. So what are we actually supposed to do there is a looming a threat? First, make sure everything outside is secure and tied down in the event we get random wind gusts. Secondly, go to the store and make sure you have plenty of water and food supplies for three days. Third, stay inside, do not drive around as the storm is hitting, and make sure everyone is safe inside. It appears that Karen is moving at a very slow pace. However, over the course of tonight and through the weekend, stay tuned to local weather channels to get the most up to date coverage on Tropical Storm Karen. Even though it looks like it might be weakening, that doesn’t mean to not be prepared.
