The most important thing you can do in preparation for a storm is to be ready. Stock up early on hurricane essentials, like canned nonperishable foods, flashlights, and weather radios. You need to pay close attention to forecast models, so you know when and where the storm’s impact will be felt and felt most. Even in the event that the storm is not at hurricane strength, we will still feel the impact of heavy rain, and wind, for a sustained period of time. If you can at all avoid the roads, it is probably best. And if you are traveling along our highways, give yourself extra time and drive with extreme care and caution. Roads are likely to flood in certain areas, as well as debris from trees, and stoplight outages. Remember also to obey and observe flashing traffic lights. Many folks fail to treat flashing traffic lights properly, and will not stop or yield when they should. Take extra caution, and above all, stay safe.
