The most important step is to know what you and your family will do in the event of a hurricane. Write out the steps and share them with your family and friends. This is called a hurricane plan.

Think about whether you will evacuate or stay at home. Do you live in a hurricane evacuation zone? Find out your zone and your local evacuation route (some roads will be closed or have lanes reversed to ease traffic). Try contacting your local emergency management office or American Red Cross chapter, and ask for the community hurricane preparedness plan. This plan should include the safest evacuation routes and the nearby shelters.
Where will you stay? With another family member, relative or friend living in a nonevacuation zone? Or in a hotel or shelter in a location out of the hurricane watch and warning area?
What will happen if you’re at work, school or otherwise separated from loved ones when a storm strikes? How will you find each other? Sometimes texting works better than calling when phone systems are overloaded during an emergency. Also, ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as the “family contact.” Make sure everyone knows his or her name, address and phone number.
Don’t forget those with special needs. They will require an individualized, more detailed plan, Salna said. And if you have a loved one in a senior or nursing care facility, make sure that person will be OK, he added.

Tips to Help You Prepare for a  Storm
Do you know how to prepare for a storm? Most all of us will face some type of severe winter weather in our lives. Even if you don’t live where it snows, you may travel somewhere that does. One of the biggest risks from big  storms is their ability to knock out your electricity, heat and communication services. With a bad storm, this can sometimes last for days.

People are born with the innate desire to survive, but sadly, many in our increasingly dependent society look to others for relief and assistance following a disaster. The fact is that help from government, family, or neighbors is often unavailable when needed most, and in the end you may have only yourself to count on. Do you know what to do and how to do it if disaster strikes? 

Most people are going to run out (if they haven’t already) and buy up all the milk, bread, and toilet paper they think they’ll need to get through the storm. If you need those things, then go ahead (but if you don’t, then really?) but you should add a few other things to your shopping list. A few other things you shouldn’t forget:

# Emergency or First Aid Kit: If you don’t have one already, and even if you do, it’s a good time to check it and make sure you’re not missing anything. This post is a good primer to make sure you have everything.

# Make sure you have a 3 day supply of water (3 gallons per person) and easy to prepare food. Here is my favorite 72 hour no-prep food kit.

# Medication Refills: Because the last thing you want is to run out of something you need while you’re snowed in and the pharmacy is closed.

# SANITATION – Pack supplies for sanitation, such as hand sanitizer, towelettes, paper products, diapers, and plastic bags, for use when water resources are limited.

# Flashlight and Extra Batteries: In case the power goes out. Candles are fine if they’re supervised, but most authorities tell you to avoid them because, well, open flames are generally a bad idea.

# An Emergency Radio: If you don’t have one already, now’s a good time to pick one up. They’re affordable, available everywhere, and will keep you up to speed on storm or weather alerts even if you don’t have power.

# NEVER use generators, outdoor heating or cooking equipment, such as a grill, camp stove, or a gasoline or propane heater, indoors.

# If driving is absolutely necessary, keep disaster supplies in your vehicle, make sure your vehicle is properly equipped, and use extra precaution on the roads.

Make sure automobiles contain the following emergency supplies to handle .
Tire chains (every driver should practice putting them on)
Flares or reflective triangle to warn other motorists if you break down
Flashlight and batteries
Gallon jug of drinking water
First aid kit

When traveling by car, include emergency food and clothing for each traveler.

Pack supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency backpack in case you need to abandon your car.
The National Weather Service (NWS) refers to winter storms as “deceptive killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storms. The majority of deaths caused by  storms are from vehicle accidents . In addition, people can die from carbon monoxide poisoning when using portable generators indoors, including in attached garages, or too close to the house. Generators should be used only outdoors and should be located at least 20 feet away from doors, windows, or vents. Individuals also suffer cold injuries, such as frostbite or hypothermia, from being outside too long and by not being well protected from storm.

Why do people wait till the last second to prepare for anything?!?!

    Pretty sure this article is a repost from a long time ago.

    I recognize calling the Pacific Northwest the Northwest Pacific, and listing the whole West coast, but forgetting Washington.

    For the record, there’s no storm warnings from real websites. Just a brief mention last week that there COULD new a winter storm next weekend. No messages, warnings, or alerts since then.

    Air Quotes Shill Air Quotes:::: I wondered the same thing when i saw the video, especially when i saw the video of the Hurricane around Florida, however …………, I go too a website everyone should be familiar with, It tells the wind-particulates- co2- etc etc, IT is showing a MASSIVE complex of storms in the Pacific Northwest, with ( 3 ) very huge low pressure systems around the pacific northwest. Furthermore it shows a tremendous amount of Moisture being pumped up from the Tropics down south!!! Honestly too me this looks Epic!!!!! I will give the website too look for yourselfs, so you can make up your own minds.

    It is ( ). When you go their click on the ( Earth ), button on bottom left side, to which you will find multiple options as too what you want too look up such as co2- oxygen- etc etc. Go too ( Air ), and wait a few seconds too download. Ive been watching the weather for along time and i cant say ive ever seen anything like this! If it tracks South East then who knows what damage it could do! But it looks too me like its going too hit Washington state, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, maybe northern Wyoming, and especially Canada. This time of year probably will turn into Blizzards. If it turns into a Massive Blizzard then Please EVERYONE , Load up on food , and all the necessities you will need cause this will be ONE after Another, after another , after another etc. Their wont be breaks in the weather long enough too go shopping the way its looking. No i dont think the article is exagerating at all , and possibly the article may be too nice. I have seen what a killer blizzard can do . Contrary too Googles lack of disclosing the truth , back in 1977 Early April a massive Blizzard h it the eastern slopes of colorado, with winds of over 100 MPH+ for over 4.5 days!! When it was done we had snowdrifts which were literly as tall as telephone poles!!! I looked it up online one day and found no mention of it, because of certain ( Legal ), Ramifications that could have resulted , i will leave it at that. I was their barely survived it, with my mother, and brother, so i know first hand how bad mother nature can get!!!! Please tell me,,, after looking at the nullschool website if you think im exagerating, lol even if my typing sucks, am i right?, or wrong. I do know this: if i was living up their i would be loading up on supplies while i still could. Pls take this serious. I know BIN can exaggerate at times lol but, this time i dont think so. GB and take care, who knows where it will go. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
