Growing up in Florida isn’t always sunny, even though we are known as the Sunshine State. Hurricane Season takes up almost half of the year (June-November). 99% of the time, hurricane prep involves planning hurricane parties, but there’s always that 1% chance where an actual hurricane can be a severe hit.
Last year, Hurricane Irma pretty much gave everyone a heart attack. The storm itself wasn’t so bad, but rather the uncertainty of not knowing what was to come, especially since the eye of the storm was constantly shifting. Plus, supplies were going fast and what was left was extremely limited.
During the storm we lost power and the ocean started disappearing. All that was left for a while was sand, until the water returned. After the storm had passed, the power was out for about a week. Luckily, there was minimal damage but lots of debris and a ton of cleanup.
Hurricane prep varies for each client based on their specific needs, but make sure you have the essentials on hand!
How we organize hurricane essentials for clients vary based on if they are staying home or evacuating. Evacuation isn’t an option for everyone. For more in depth guidelines on creating your own hurricane kit, please follow these links below:
