Hurricane Preparations

This post, due to the nature of the topic, will be short.

In light of Hurricane Matthew’s impending arrival I want to say, first of all, that my heart goes out to those who have dealt with or are about to deal with Matthew.

A street with a 'Hurricane Evacuation Route' sign.

Here are a couple of tips that may be of help to you.

For individuals and businesses in Florida and South Carolina, there’s not much time left for preparations. There are two things you can do–or have your kids do:

  1. Take pictures of the interior of the house and important or valuable items, then take pictures of the exterior.
  2. Either take your computer with you or download your most important files onto a flash drive. Accounting records, business data, etc. as well as any personal information such as bank and brokerage account numbers, etc. In the future you should consider backing up the computer to the cloud or to an outboard hard drive (if you don’t already). Make sure you put the flash or hard drive in a waterproof container before leaving the house.

Again, my heartfelt best wishes to those who have been affected by Matthew or who will be dealing with this hurricane very soon.
