Citizens Property Insurance Corporation recently posted some helpful information about the “What to do’s” for hurricane season in Florida. Check it out!

When there are tropical storm and hurricane warnings you should……

  • Check your family’s emergency supply kit– make certain you have food, water, medications, and other necessities to sustain you, your family and family pets for at least 72 hours.
  • Follow the direction of local officials – any evacuation orders come from local officials, so follow their guidance. When it comes to swimming, follow local warnings as well. Even the best swimmers can fall victim to the strong waves and rip currents caused by storms.
  • Keep up to date with local conditions – follow TV and radio reports from your area, or visit www.weather.gov (http://mobile.weather.gov on your phone) for      the latest forecast.
  • Remember food safety – power outages and flooding may happen as a result of a tropical storm or hurricane, so have a plan for keeping food safe. Have a cooler on hand to keep food cold, and group food together in the freezer so it stays cold longer.
  • Have an adequate communication plan – be sure friends and family know how to contact you. Teach family members how to use text messaging as text      messages can often get around network disruptions when a phone call might      not able to get through.

Keep in mind, hurricane season in Florida bring heavy rains, storm surges, and possible flooding events. Avoid walking or driving through any flooded areas – it takes only six inches of fast-moving flood water to knock over an adult and two feet to move a vehicle.
Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
