Be prepared this hurricane season
And for the most part, we have all been educated as to what we must do to be prepared.
And by being prepared, we mean in dozens of different ways. First of all, get your generator in order so if you plan to stick around as long as possible youíll have a somewhat normal existence.
Be sure your vehicle is filled with gas at all times. Have flashlights, batteries and other emergency equipment well in reach for when the time comes.
If youíre on prescription medication, have an extra supply on hand. Store food that does not need refrigeration in case of power problems.
Keep attuned to the weather, where hurricanes are threatening and which way they could come and go. Plan your escape routes in each direction and determine the best places to land.
Keep attuned to radio warnings - how strong the winds will get and how high the water will rise. And prepare to leave before the danger warnings arise.
Remember that coastal Louisiana is hurricane country and some of the worst have come this way. And it is far better to get away before they get here.
This season, which lasts until Nov. 30, is expected to be an active one. Remembering the names of Audrey, Betsy and Katrina should alert you to the dangers that can come your way.
So thereís no looking back. If the hurricane is coming from the southeast, head for the northwest and if from the southwest, head for the northeast. Take the easiest route possible to get out of its way.
And be prepared.
