It's That Time Of Year Again
Officially, the Atlantic hurricane season begins tomorrow. It runs from June 1st until November 30th and it always brings a lot of destruction in its path.
The past couple of years have been worse than ever, and scientists predict that this year will follow the same pattern with more serious storms and extreme weather patterns. The last two years, forecasters actually ran out of names for the named hurricanes, something that usually doesn't happen, but it seems to become the norm these days.
More storms translated into more hurricanes making landfall than usual as well, and that can be expected to repeat this year. So knowing all this, what precautions should you take?
Prepare For The Worst
One of the most common problems after storms is that people aren't as prepared as they should be. Many have the "It's not going to happen to me" mentality, and because of this, they don't expect to be in a tough situation after a storm.
To avoid that, prepare as if every single storm was heading straight for you. Having a go-bag prepared with the essentials to survive if you need to leave your home suddenly is a great way to prepare. It is also wise to keep a constant supply of non-perishable food and drinking water stored at home in case you get stuck in your home for an extended period of time.
