3 Crucial Tips to Survive a Hurricane

Hurricanes typically occur in America in every three years. This natural disaster has claimed thousands of lives and properties over the United States, Hurricane Katrina being the strongest one to ever happen back on 2005.

What can you do to avoid the same circumstance?

Preparing and ensuring everyone’s safety should be a top priority. Here are 3 crucial tips in order to survive a hurricane.

  1. Secure Your House

Safety always comes first. The safest place for you whenever there is a hurricane is your home. It is advisable to stay indoors during a hurricane. It is best to secure your house and make sure it can withstand the strongest typhoon. Here are some tips on how to protect your house:

  • Check all locks and windows and see if there is a need for repair.
  • Cover windows with ply woods to make sure glasses don’t break.
  • Check roof and gutters to ensure they are tight.
  • Check any item or objects that can be easily taken away by strong gushes of wind.
  • Make sure the electrical wirings are all in place and safe from water contact.
  • Identify the safest spot or space in your house. It could be a bathroom or a closet. Avoid spots near the windows.
  • Practice safekeeping. It is the act of storing all important documents and valuables in a safe area. You may store papers in a plastic envelope bag.
  • Keep house, car and boat keys in one place.
  • Trim tall trees around your house. Trees tend to break due to strong winds.

2. Stock Up On Food and Water Supply

Preparedness always goes a long way. It is better to b over prepared than underprepared. Keeping a livable amount of food and water is very important. It is highly recommended to store foods that aren’t easily spoiled; namely canned goods, biscuits and chips, chocolates, cereals and crackers. Don’t forget to keep infant/baby foods as well if you have kids at home. Keeping medicines and vitamins also helps.

As for the water, it is best to keep it into plastic containers or gallons. Staying hydrated plays, a big part in survival. Humans scientifically can last longer without food than water.

3. Prepare Essential Items ( First Aid Kits, Flashlights, Lifesaver, Radio)

In every disaster or natural calamity, preparing all these essential stuffs is important. Smart people always keep a first aid kit in their homes. It can’t be simple as that though, make sure that your kit includes several types of medicines, wound dressings, allergy creams, toiletries and other hygiene and personal items.

It is also wise to keep at least three heavy duty flashlights or even headlights in case of power shortage. You must also have back up batteries.

Have you ever wondered why hotels, cruise ships and other establishments keep an ax in the hallway? Because it is a lifesaver tool. The chances of getting stuck in your house or car during hurricanes are pretty high. Having an ax for breaking out will surely be useful just in case. Another lifesaver tool to have is a floatation device.

Lastly, it is best to purchase a radio to get updates from time to time. Sometimes, rescue teams or missions are announced via the radio and you wouldn’t want to miss a chance on survival just because you don’t have a radio.

There is a saying that goes “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”, thinking and planning ahead of time always results to greatness. The same thing applies to surviving hurricanes, being prepared is the best tip you must always keep in mind.
