Dont have Hurricane amnesia..

Real Estate Agent with Margaret Rudd & Associates Inc.

This blog from Lesley Wilson-VanGoethem is a good reminder for all of us here in Coastal Carolina.

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?????

This topic of preparedness could easily be a month long serial for you.  So many things that Americans haven't taken the time to watch out for. Certainly the natural disasters but power outages because of a car accident or worse, a health scare, home many to choose from.  They all become less scary though if you avoid the amnesia you mentioned! Good topic.

Hi Tom - The closings are just one aspect of this.  No one on the East Coast is immune including those of us in New York remembering Sandy in 2012.

Good morning Tom - I hope people took note this year.  Things are still being put back together after this last storm.
