Hurricane Preparedness Day 7 Taking Action

It is important to remember that after the storm can be just as dangerous as before.  Downed power lines and trees can leave you isolated.  Flooded roadways can be dangerous to drive though, and often contain toxins harmful for human contact.  Try to practice caution when recovering from a hurricane, which occur in the summer months when temperatures can be dangerously hot and humid.  Remember to stay hydrated and not overexert yourself trying to clean up after a hurricane.  Don’t forget pets too, they feel the effects of hot temperatures often quicker than their human owners.  Have enough clean drinking water for them and your family.   For more information watch this video from the National Hurricane Center:
