The year is soon over but the hurricane season is still upon us! We have one more month left, and we still need to prepare for the unexpected. It’s been a bit quiet since the historic Hurricane Dorian stamped his mark on our neighbours. Most of us by now have eaten all the hurricane snacks and drank the bottled water trying to hydrate in the extreme heat we’ve been experiencing.  

Here are 5 ways to ride out the remainder of the hurricane season:

1. Restock your storm goods
2. Keep your documents in a safe, dry and easily accessible place
3. Take pictures and inventory of your valuables and possessions 
4. Know your local emergency numbers and shelters
5. Ensure your property is adequately insured

The hurricane season officially starts from June 1st and ends November 30th, but this year unofficially started May 20th. With the clear effects of climate change in the region, we really don’t know what 2020 will bring. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get prepared, click the link below for a few tips to get started.
