Real Tips to Help You Prepare for a Hurricane
Hurricane season is here and so is hurricane preparation time! It isn’t too late to prepare
for a serious storm.
Last year’s season was catastrophic and ranks as the fifth-most active season since
reasonable records began. Hurricane Harvey inundated eastern Texas, Hurricane Irma
destroyed parts of our state as well as the northeastern Caribbean, and Hurricane Maria
devastated Puerto Rico and Dominica.
We have a long way to go with hurricane season extending through November 30. Have
you done your hurricane prep yet?
How to Prepare for a Hurricane
Hurricanes and tropical storms can inflict tremendous damage on people and property.
Take precautions now to be ready for dangerous storms and to avoid long lines and
empty shelves as storm watches are announced.
Learn your hurricane evacuation route and destination.
Prepare a hurricane kit consisting of emergency supplies for use if you shelter in
place or to take with you if you have to evacuate. Store your kit in an easily-carried
bag. Include 3 days of water and non-perishable food, first aid kit, personal
hygiene items, flashlights, battery-operated radio, special needs like medication,
baby and pet supplies.
Get ready for a power outage. Fill up your cars with gas and prep your generators.
Charge your cell phone and invest in a portable charger. Keep extra cash on hand.
Fill large containers and your bathtub with water for flushing and washing only.
Drink only bottled water. Keep freezer packs in the freezer to help preserve food.

Secure Your Home to Safeguard Your Property and Avoid Hurting Others
Bring all outdoor decorations, furniture and garbage cans inside. If you have a
pool, you can toss lawn chairs into it.
Get materials and be ready to cover your windows with wood or shutters. Taping
will only prevent glass from splintering everywhere.
Reinforce garage doors.

What Happens to Your Body
During a Car Accident?
Picture your body in an auto accident . You are moving along with your vehicle when
suddenly and dramatically that motion is stopped or altered as you hit another vehicle or
stationary object. Your car may have stopped but your body doesn’t, for a split-second
straining against the seat belt and possibly striking the windshield, steering wheel or side
of the car.
Many factors affect what happens to your body during a car crash:
Type of crash (head-on, etc.)
Safety equipment like airbags and seatbelts
Where you are sitting
Whether you hit another vehicle or a solid object
Car Crash Injuries Based on Type of Accident
This infographic is a good visual of what happens to your body in a car accident.
Front crashes. Seatbelt wearers typically experience chest and lower limb
injuries, while those without belts suffer severe head and facial injuries along with
chest, pelvis and leg damage.
Side crashes. These accidents can cause serious injuries even at low speeds. For
those on the struck side of the vehicle, chest, lower extremity, head and abdominal
injuries are common as they strike the door panel. Victims on the non-struck side
may experience head and chest injuries when hitting the driver or another
Rear-end collisions. The most common injuries are those to the chest, head,
neck and spine. Whiplash, where the head has moved forward and then backward
very fast, occurs frequently.
Rollovers. A rollover after striking an object or vehicle can cause very severe
injuries. The most common are to the upper extremities and chest, head and face,
shoulders, lower extremities and pelvis. Victims may be ejected from the vehicle
causing traumatic brain injury as well as other severe damage.
