Prepare For Flooding And Power Outages
All over the county we are seeing severe weather events – tornados, hurricanes, flash flooding, and heavy storms. This is typical summer weather for many areas, but it can happen anywhere. With these types of weather events, you should expect and be prepared for flooding, water damage and power outages. When power outages last more than just a few hours, it’s best to be prepared.
A home emergency kit is a must have for any situation. It should include items such as non-perishable food, a can opener, a first aid kit, flashlights, a battery powered radio, bottled water, and extra batteries. This kit should be kept in a waterproof bag or box and should be easily accessible. Test batteries regularly to make sure they’re still working.
Some other items you may choose to keep may include: Extra clothing and blankets, medications you need to take on a daily basis, a cell phone with a portable power unit, personal hygiene items, extra cash, emergency contact information, maps of the area, pet supplies, whistle, matches, towels, and/or a multi-purpose tool.
Have a 3-5 day supply on hand for each of these items – especially water and food – but use them sparingly. If you need to evacuate, do NOT travel through floodwaters. Find an alternative route and bring whatever emergency supplies you can carry with you.
