How to Hurricane-Proof Your Home

We may be more than halfway through hurricane season, but the possibility of the arrival of a big storm is still very real.  So, if you haven’t prepared your house yet, now would be a good time.

The following infograph gives plenty of suggestions for hurricane-proofing your home, especially at the door and window locations.

If nothing else, having a hurricane survival kit is important.  Remember to stock bottled water.  You should have a half gallon per person per day, and enough to last 2 weeks.  So 7 gallons per person.

Other things to have in a survival kit include battery-powered flashlights and radio, extra batteries, a first aid kit, non-perishable food, and a can opener.
