How do I prepare for Florida hurricane season?
Like flooding from rains, hurricane hazards are another South Florida natural phenomenon. We've all seen the results of giant hurricanes like Andrew and Katrina and you need to be prepared for large storms if you want to live in the Miami area. Hurricane hazards come in the following forms:
- Storm Surge
- High Winds
You should have a good idea of your home's susceptibility to all of these hazards and you should know if you live in an evacuation area and where storm shelters are located. In June you should make sure you have all the supplies you need in your hurricane kit (including fresh batteries) and then just monitor the weather. You'll get plenty of warning on what you need to do but you should have a family plan that you communicate to your loved ones in case of emergency.
