Climate Change to Increase Hurricane Strength, Scientists Say
— September 10 has so far been the busiest day of the 2019 hurricane season, according to news reports. The warming water of the Atlantic Ocean coupled with favorable weather conditions, has made it an ideal breeding ground for hurricanes.
Research meteorologist, Tom Knutson, says the available evidence suggests that the warming world is producing stronger hurricanes, such as Dorian. “The frequency is not changing, but the intensity is. The number of storms may not increase, but those that reach Category 4 or 5 hurricanes will increase.”
Thus, residents in coastal regions and states are urged to leverage their disaster preparedness and ensure that everyone in the household is closely acquainted with their preparedness plan and local hurricane protocols. Authorities are also advising households to check their respective hurricane survival kits and ensure that they have enough provisions for handling wounds and stabilizing injuries.
Surviveware, a leading retailer of preparedness and survival gear, offers an ideal kit for hurricane evacuation efforts with enough content to support the entire family- the Surviveware Large First Aid Kit.
Holding 200 pieces of life-saving provisions, this kit contains adhesive bandages, gauze wraps, cotton swabs, antiseptic and cleansing wipes, durable shears, sting relief wipes, emergency blanket, and hydrogels to be used in handling wounds, sprains, breaks, concussions, shock, hypo- and hyperthermia, insect bites, fever, and minor burns. Surviveware also included a CPR mask and an advanced first aid manual perfect for beginners and individuals with minimal knowledge on first aid.
Apart from these first aid provisions, a mini kit containing 50 items that can be attached to a keyring and hooked on one’s belt is found inside the Large First Aid Kit. This additional pack provides an added layer of protection in a situation where the owner needs to head out of the house or evacuation center for a day.
This hurricane survival kit must-have is also portable. A durable top handle is incorporated to ensure ease of movement and convenience during evacuation efforts. MOLLE-friendly straps give it more flexibility and functionality.

“We live in Hawaii, and with nearly half the year being hurricane season, we need to be prepared. Based on what I saw when I opened it up, the first aid kit seemed to very well-thought-out. And what gives me even greater confidence in the kit is that my girlfriend (a nurse practitioner) was really impressed with it (and wouldn’t mind one for her next birthday!).”
