Hurricane season is NOW.


Hurricanes in Atlanta, Georgia are among the most dangerous types of weather conditions and for six months out of the year.  Hurricanes are dangerous because they dump heavy rain in a short period of time and have very powerful winds.  The heavy rain can quickly cause severe water damage and flooding and the winds are strong enough to damage buildings and knock down large objects like trees and power lines.  These storms are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage in Atlanta, Georgia. If you live in a hurricane-prone area like Atlanta, Georgia, it is important to prepare for the possibility of a hurricane.

5 Tips to Prepare for the Hurricane Season in Atlanta, Georgia

The following hurricane preparedness tips will help you get ready for hurricane season.  You must address any damage to your property from a hurricane immediately by calling a storm damage restoration expert.

1. Review your plan: At the start of each hurricane season, review your plan for preparing and reacting to a hurricane and update if needed.

2. Protect important documents: Put important documents like birth certificates, titles, house deeds, and others in a waterproof safe. This safe should be stored on the upper floors of your home for more protection.

3. Discuss the plan: Share the plan with your family so everyone knows what to do when a hurricane is imminent.

4. Emergency supply kit: Have emergency supplies ready in case you are trapped in your home without power or forced to evacuate. See the section below for more on what to include in your emergency supply kit.

  • Putting together an emergency supply kit is an important part of hurricane preparation.  Your emergency supply kit should contain the following:
  • Water: You should have one gallon of water per person each day for between 3 and 7 days.
  • Food: Your food supply should consist of non-perishable items and snacks as well as paper plates, a can opener, and cooking tools.
  • Clothing: Pack clothing that can withstand rainy conditions.
  • Blankets and pillows: Have enough blankets and pillows for each member of your family.
  • First Aid Kit: Pack necessary medication and prescription drugs as well as bandages and other supplies to deal with minor injuries.
  • Toiletries: Include personal hygiene products.
  • Special items: Make sure to pack any special items needed for young children or the elderly.
  • Flashlight batteries: Pack a flashlight and extra batteries to keep it working.
  • Radio: Include a small battery-operated radio to listen to weather reports.
  • Cell phones: Keep your cell phones charged and bring extra batteries and a charger.
  • Cash and credit cards: You may not be able to visit a bank or ATM if the hurricane has caused significant widespread damage.
  • Keys: Make sure you have your keys for your car and house.
  • Pet care: If you have pets, you must have supplies for them too. Make sure you have the proper identification documents, food, and water for several days, a leash, and a cage if necessary.
  • Tools: Having a simple tool kit handy can be useful.
  • Gas in vehicles: Make sure your car is filled with gas before a storm so you can evacuate without making any stops.
5. Evacuation routes: Hurricane prone areas typically have mapped out evacuation routes. Make sure you are familiar with the evacuation route in your area in case a hurricane forces you to evacuate.
