Preparing For Hurricane Season in Florida

It's that time of the year again, hurricane season. This year, we have decided we need to prepare better than we have in the past. We bought a portable generator and a solar powered battery charger in case our electricity is knocked out during a hurricane. We already lost our power for two hours a couple of weeks ago in our neighborhood. One of the transformers went back and our family was left in the dark. We don't want this to happen to us during hurricane season.

Preparing for hurricane season in Florida is very important. We are right in the middle of the action. Hurricanes go by every year and sometimes come to Florida for a visit. When they come, they leave all sorts of damage and destruction. You can even get hit by tornadoes that spur from the hurricanes. Even if you don't feel the full brunt from the hurricane, often you get a taste of high winds and heavy rain.

We make sure we buy at least ten cases of drinking water, canned goods and other supplies in preparation each and every year. We have lived in Florida for ten years, we have not been hit directly by a hurricane, but we have felt affects from hurricanes as they passed by. We plan to be prepared if a hurricane hits our area directly because hurricane preparation can save your life.
