1. Freeze A Cup Of Water And Leave It In The Freezer With A Quarter On Top
Ok, what’s this about? When you leave to avoid the storm, the power might go out and you won’t know about it. But, if you leave a quarter on top and it happens, the water will melt and the quarter will sink to the bottom. You will then know that the power went out and the food needs to be tossed out.
2. Take Pictures
Take pictures of your house, inside and out. We had a major storm come through and our roof was damaged. Luckily we had a very kind insurance adjuster that took mercy on us, but I know some people that have not been this lucky. It is always a good idea to take pictures of everything, just in case, so that the insurance will have an idea of what it looked like to begin with.
3. Make A Folder Of All Important Documents
It is very important to have a folder of all of your important documents, insurance docs, proof of ownership of your home, vehicles and boats. If something were to happen to any of your belongings, it would be a good idea to have proof that you own whatever it is that you may be claiming. In addition, you may want to include copies of birth certificates, social security cards and IDs.
4. Create An Entertainment Kit
When hurricanes come, the power may be out for hours or even days. It would be a good idea to keep an entertainment kit ready, with games and books for the little ones to read. This will help keep their minds off of what may be going on.
5. Create A Survival Kit
Last, but most important, you will want to create a survival kit that contains all of the essentials needed for surviving a storm. Food, Water, First Aid Kits and Flashlights are some of the basics you will want to add. I have attached a free downloadable hurricane supply checklist which you can download and print out HERE——> Free Downloadable Hurricane Supply Checklist
These are just some of the basics that can help make any disaster situation much easier. If you have any other tips, please list them below! 🙂
