Have you or a family member experienced the force of a hurricane first hand? Unfortunately, many people don’t think about what to do in a hurricane until it’s too late. With one of our main locations in Corpus Christi, Window World TX firmly believes in hurricane preparedness. That’s one of the many reasons we offer and install hurricane impact windows.
While this year’s hurricane season is in the rear-view window, it’s never too soon to plan for the next wave of tropical storms and hurricanes.
First things first, don’t miss out on any important updates from the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. Follow them on Twitter at @NHC_Atlantic and @NHC_Pacific – don’t forget to opt for mobile updates! Remember, if evacuation is suggested, you should take it very seriously.
Tropical storms and hurricanes can down power lines and leave you without electricity, Wi-Fi – you name it! That’s why it’s important to have a physical list of addresses, phone numbers and driving directions if necessary. The National Hurricane Center recommends that you write down the information for:
- Local Emergency Management Office
- County Law Enforcement
- County Public Safety Fire/Rescue
- State, County and City/Town Government
- Local Hospitals
- Local Utilities
- Local American Red Cross
- Local TV Stations
- Local Radio Stations
- Your Property Insurance Agent
Don’t forget to have your basic disaster supplies kit ready. Depending on the size of your family you may need several large plastic bins to hold food, water, medicine, first aid and more. See a full kit list at http://www.ready.gov/kit
