Hurricane Irene hits the East Coast

After a diminished Hurricane Irene brushed up against the East coast of the US, many people snickered about what they considered to be overblown hype in the face of the storm. Past hurricanes such as Camille, Ivan, Frederick, Rita, and Katrina made Irene look pale in comparison.

There are still over 400,000 people in Virginia without power, over 563,000 in New York, and the slow response to power outages in New Jersey has left thousands of residents disgruntled and angry.

You don’t need life-altering devastation to find yourself totally unprepared and facing hunger, water scarcity, and loss of property. In fact, it’s the smaller upheavals that seem to catch us unaware and leave us floundering for some safety in the storm. Having a survival plan, knowing your essential emergency needs, and preparing beforehand with your family members will help you weather whatever storms come your way.

A Grab and Go Kit is a perfect way to be prepared for an emergency. Place one in each vehicle and one in each bedroom of your house. Your family can grab them on the way out the door.
