Hurricane season had officially started. It runs from June thru November.  Those of us in the coastal areas knows that could mean as many as 25 or 30 big storms.  Those storms have the potential to hit businesses , ruin homes and can cause serious damage to entire towns.  The National Hurricane Center stresses the importance of early preparation.     You probably already know that you should have an emergency plan. , if not here are  some of the basic hurricane safety actions from the National Hurricane Center are:

Know if you live in an evacuation area. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.  Have a written plan .

Keep a disaster supply kit containing : water, food, flashlight and extra batteries, first aid kit and battery-powered or hand crank radio  ( for a complete list you can go to www ready.gov/basic-disaster-supplies-kit )

During the season monitor the tropics.

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio the official source for real-time weather information and warnings.

If the storm threatens, heed the advice for your local authorities. Evacuate if ordered.

Part of prepping for a hurricane is clearing stuff out of your yard.  Where are you going to put it ? A garage is a good place but if you don’t have one or you have no more space in the garage, consider renting a storage unit for the season.

It will also provide a place to secure valuable  and sentimental property .  They can be useful to store everything from medicine supplies, emergency water and valuable paperwork.  Remember computer files should be backed up.

When packing your storage unit, place heavy objects on the ground.  If you need to stack boxes, stack lighter boxes on the top and  arrange furniture flat on the ground.  Bookcases and heavy standing objects can cause damage if they fall.

StoreRight Self Storage can provide you with all your storage needs and invite you to reserve your space early.   We would also recommend that your belongings are insured properly.  Please call our office or stop by for insurance options.
