Time to Prepare

Quoting FEMA - It only takes one storm to change your life and community. Tropical cyclones are among.  nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena, affecting both coastal and inland areas. Each year, many parts of the United States experience heavy rains, strong winds, floods, and coastal storm surges from tropical storms and hurricanes. As we have seen with Hurricanes Florence, Sandy and Matthew, the Atlantic coast is still vulnerable to tropical systems.  Hurricanes can cause loss of life and catastrophic damage to property along coastlines and can extend several hundred miles inland. The extent of damage varies according to the size, wind intensity, and path of the storm; the amount and duration of rainfall; and other factors including the number and type of buildings in the area, the terrain, and soil conditions. https://www.weather.gov/wrn/hurricane-preparedness
