The two most devastating hurricanes in the U.S. in recent memory were Sandy in October 2012 and Katrina in August 2005. The largest Atlantic hurricane on record as measured by diameter with winds spanning 1,100 miles, Sandy affected 24 states and caused an estimated $65 billion in damage in the U.S., especially in New Jersey and New York. Katrina caused at least 1,833 deaths, making it one of the five deadliest hurricanes in U.S. history, and an estimated $81 billion in property damage.
Having an emergency response plan in place in case a hurricane is approaching is crucial for those who live in areas susceptible to these vicious storms. The key to dealing with a hurricane is planning in advance. Having a 72-hour survival kit and a bug-out bag ready to go and knowing evacuation routes will save valuable time.
This week is Hurricane Preparation Week, as announced by the National Weather Service’s National Hurricane Center. The hazards of hurricanes include storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes and rip currents.
Of course, a hurricane is only one of the weather disasters that can result in people being without power, food and water for an extended period of time. Nashville, Tenn.-based Reboot Marketing LLC provides a variety of products that help people become more self-reliant and independent.
“We believe that people realize the importance of being prepared for a variety of emergencies and that they really want to be, but many of them just never get around to doing it,” said Reboot Marketing Partner Allen Baler. “We’ve made it a lot easier – and a lot less expensive than most would think – for people to get prepared and become more self-reliant.
“Whether it’s stocking up on non-perishable food and water, growing their own food with heirloom seeds, or building their own solar panels and wind turbines to get free from the vulnerable electrical grid, our products are geared toward making people independent.”
