Hurricane Preparedness for Business Owners: During a Hurricane

Hurricane Preparedness: During a Hurricane

When a hurricane strikes your local area, the key to helping minimize the chaos is to prepare a series of steps to follow during a hurricane. According to FEMA and you should do the following:

Stay Informed. Listen for the emergency information and alerts. If told to evacuate by local officials, do so immediately.

Dealing with the weather. Take refuge in a designated storm shelter or an interior room for high winds. If trapped in a building by flood go to the highest level of the building. Do not climb into a closed attic or you may become trapped by rising flood water.

Do not walk, swim or drive through flooded waters. Turn around, don’t drown! Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.

Stay off bridges over fast-moving water.

Personal Safety. If you must go to a community shelter remember to follow the latest guidelines for protecting yourself and family from COVID-19. Be prepared to take cleaning items with you to disinfect surfaces you may need to touch regularly.

Maintain at least 6 feet between you and persons not part of your immediate family while at the shelter. Anyone over 2 years old should use a cloth face covering.

When to evacuate. If you are directed by local authorities to do so, be sure to follow their instructions. If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure; such shelters are particularly hazardous during a hurricane no matter how well fastened to the ground. If you live in a high-rise building; hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations.
