Weather the Storm
Forecasters are predicting 2021 will be another above-average hurricane season so it’s essential to be prepared, including the possibility of evacuation and long-term disruption of essential services. Currently, Tropical Storm Ida could become a hurricane and reach the Gulf Coast this weekend. A few simple steps taken in advance make emergency preparation affordable even on a tight budget. The American Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency recommend a three-day supply for evacuating to a safe zone (though a two weeks' worth of emergency supplies for sheltering in place).
