The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you`re in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you`d go and how you`d get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn`t live in a zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Put your plan in writing for you and those you care about. The next statement will focus on Securing an Insurance Check-up.
