Cute Rain Gear: Ready for the Hurricane!

Cute Rain Gear: Ready for Hurricane Irene!With Hurricane Irene rapidly bearing down on us here on the East Coast, my thoughts today are more about the safety of my family and friends, than cute rain gear. (Although I do tend to react true to my nature during disasters – and once managed to save my luggage while being rescuing by the Coast Guard from a literally sinking ship once. But that’s another story!)

To prepare for Irene, today I checked the National Weather Service for a basic hurricane safety checklist. First, find out if you live in an evacuation area. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.

Next, double check the supplies in your disaster supply kit and replace batteries.  And, monitor NOAA Weather Radio for real-time weather information and warnings. And, if a storm threatens, heed the advice from local authorities. Evacuate if ordered.

Finally, if you’ve got a pet, please don’t leave them behind! Not all temporary shelters allow pets.  Please stay safe everyone!
