Hurricane season continues through November 30th, so there was always a possibility that we were going to have to deal with at least one more possible storm before the end of the season. Right now, we are anticipating the impact of Tropical Storm Beta.
Are you ready?
Here are a few steps recommended by the City of Houston to prepare:
- Be informed: register for geo-targeted emergency notifications and sign up to receive recovery information when it becomes available via AlertHouston: www.AlertHouston.org.
- Make sure your disaster kit is fully stocked, with enough supplies for each family member, including pets. Do not forget about special items for babies, the elderly, and those with access and functional needs. For a full list of what should be in your kit, visit houstonemergency.org
- Fuel vehicles and generators now. Make sure generators are outdoors and away from any open windows, doors, or vents.
- Know where important documents are and take pictures of your property for insurance purposes.
