CDC Offers Tropical Storm Preparedness Tips

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's tips on preparing for the Atlantic tropical storm and hurricane season are especially timely this year.

Tropical Storm Alberto jumped the gun by coming ashore on the Florida Panhandle on Memorial Day, which makes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's tips on preparing for the Atlantic tropical storm and hurricane season especially timely. The Atlantic hurricane season is June 1 through Nov. 30 each year. As CDC said in its news release, "You can't stop a tropical storm or hurricane, but you can take steps now to protect you and your family."

Information on each of these topics is available there for people living in areas at risk:

  • Preparing for a Hurricane: Take basic steps now to ensure your safety should a storm hit.
  • Emergency Supplies You Will Need: Stock your home and your car with supplies.
  • Make a Plan: Create a family disaster plan.
  • Avoid Flooded Areas: Take precautions before, during, and after a flood.
  • Prepare to Evacuate: Never ignore an evacuation order.
  • Protecting Older Adults: Understand older adult health and medical concerns.
  • Protecting Pets: Ensure your pet's safety before, during, and after an emergency.
  • Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After the Storm: Ensure your CO detector has working batteries. Place generators outside at least 20 feet from any door, window, or vent.
  • After a Hurricane: Learn how to avoid injuries, make sure your food and water are safe, and clean up mold safely.
