Dont have Hurricane amnesia..

Woke up this AM to the local news stations beginning their tropical storm warnings,  common from June-Nov in Florida,

Then the email alerts started from the Emergency Management Center.

"The Office of Emergency Management is closely monitoring the tropical disturbance developing near the Yucatan Peninsula. As a result, the Emergency Operations Center is activating to coordinate response to the storm. The major concerns related to this system include heavy rains, localized flooding, and spin-off tornadoes"

While it becomes second nature to all of us in Fl and many of the surrounding states, it should never be taken lightly.
the "spaghetti strands" for potential paths  show us that  virtually anything can happen..

Don't have Hurricane Amnesia- ( is been 10 years since Fl had its last one)
BE PREPARED,,, Not only supplies, but are your valuable papers in a safe place? Is it waterproof??

 

And for anyone buying a home ,,, Have you binded your insurance policy?

Once the storm enters "the box" new policies can be written,, ( Closings will not occur on any  uninsured mortgaged properties) and no changes can be made to existing  policies including flood insurance.

 

So , ,,,,,, Are you ready?????

Good advice for those of us that live in coastal areas. It's harder to get amnesia here in NC. We have had several hits here over the last few years. Nothing catastrophic, but a lot of damage in some areas. I am going to re-blog to remind people here to get ready.

Excellent post and reminder of what can happens in your area this time of year.

Thanks Will,  The biggest thing we need to remember is to never become complacent. ( And as Realtors- how it affects our business!)

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since the last hurricane in FL - we're still reeling from our big Hurricane Sandy a few years back in NJ.

Wayne and Jean Marie, Amazing that even with warning  , we still tend to think it wont affect us... It can take years to fully recover, as you know all too well. Hope you have a storm free year ahead!
