           Hurricane Safety Tips






The 2013 hurricane season has officially started and meteorologists at  www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/  warn that we could be in for a rough time of it.

- Hurricane season affects the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico from June through November, though most severe storms occur between August and October. Being ready prior to any severe storm making landfall, and knowing what to do once a storm hits, is critical. In addition, travelers need to take special precautions. Follow these tips for hurricane safety and preparedness.

When the Hurricane Hits

- Listen to the TV and/or radio to track bulletins and updates; follow the directions of authorities if an evacuation is mandated.
- If asked to do so by authorities, turn off utilities including water, electricity and propane tanks.
- Stay indoors at all times, close interior doors, secure exterior doors.
- Stay away from any windows. Find a room without windows, and take shelter there. If that is not possible, go into a closet.

Travel Tips

- Before planning any vacation, particularly one during hurricane season, always purchase travel insurance that covers natural disasters, like hurricanes. 
- Before leaving deposits with a hotel or purchasing outright a vacation package, find out what their policy is in the event of a hurricane or other natural disaster. Be sure to closely read any sort of policy being offered, as not all situations are reimbursed.
- If a storm is imminent, check in frequently with your airline to see if flights are being canceled, as well as your hotel to learn whether any evacuations are planned.
