Floridians are facing the potential of a one-two punch in the form of a powerful storm system striking our state amid the ongoing CoVID-19 pandemic. This unprecedented risk presents a unique set of concerns which should be considered in addition to your normal storm preparations. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you make necessary storm preparations in order to keep your family and property safe and secure.
First, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic makes it necessary to expand your hurricane shopping list to include sanitization and PPE supplies. If possible, you should make such purchases in advance through an online retailer rather than depleting the supplies available at your local stores. Be sure to stock up on face masks and disinfectants in addition to the standard hurricane preparedness supplies.
When it comes to preventing property damage during tropical storms and hurricanes, one of the best ways to mitigate this possibility is eliminating any hazards on your property which could become airborne projectiles during a storm. This means securing any patio furniture or untethered items in your yard, as well as performing landscape maintenance and tree trimming, perhaps even removing any trees which are a direct threat to any structures on the property. They may be a beautiful part of your yard, but the danger far outweighs any aesthetic benefits they offer.
As a Florida resident, you are likely well-versed in the practice of storm preparedness. As this proves to be a very active storm season, there are some additional precautions you should take this year due to the ongoing pandemic sweeping our state and the nation. An overabundance of caution in these circumstances will do you no harm and could prove lifesaving should a worse-case scenario occur.
