How to prepare for the storm of the century

Getting Ready For the Storm of the Century

In anticipation of the severe weather expected in the next few days along the East Coast, please be aware that The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to impact the eastern coast of the United States over the next couple of days.

There are different levels of storm preparedness – for example, I was talking with my friend last night who lives in Upper Manhattan and she was getting prepared for the storm. She had bought 4 days worth of water, food, batteries, filled the bathtub with water, purchased a battery operated radio and was hoping for the best. I hope the best for her too but we wanted to provide a more in depth resource on how to prepare before, during and after a hurricane.

This is a reminder to review your Emergency Action Plan and if needed use the links below to learn what you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones.
