Weather forecasters are predicting a doozy of a hurricane season with above average activity this year. As many as 18 named storms could impact communities along the coast. Hurricanes Sandy, Irene and Isaac serve as sobering reminders of the importance of families being prepared just in case the unthinkable happens. Preparing now, before the weather turns serious, is a family’s best defense.
So where do you start? Preparation should focus on four key activities, which the whole family can do together.
- Take time to shop and put together an emergency kit.
- Hit the road and practice an evacuation route out of town and to a safe place.
- Pull out the camera and take pictures of the personal belongings.
- Sign up for Allstate Alerts to stay on top of bad weather heading into the area.
