Watch more Hurricanes & Storms videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/471526-How-to-Survive-a-Hurricane Don't wait until a storm is heading your way! Survive a hurricane with these safety precautions. Step 1: Plan ahead Plan ahead. Know the location of local shelters and how you'll evacuate if you don't have a car. If you have family members with special medical needs, ask local officials if there's a registry so they get help in the event of power outages. Pick a place for family members to meet in case you become separated, and designate an out-of-town friend as the person everyone calls to report that they're safe. Get flood insurance if you don't already have it. Tip Make sure you know how to shut off electricity, gas, and water in case you're instructed to do so. Step 2: Be prepared Have the following supplies on hand at the start of hurricane season: a 3-day supply of water that provides 1 gallon per person per day; a 3-day supply of non-perishable food that doesn't require cooking; a flashlight and extra batteries; a battery-powered radio that can receive broadcasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; a first-aid kit; and a 7-day supply of medications. Tip The Atlantic and Central Pacific hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30; the Eastern Pacific is from May 15 through November. Step 3: Get ready If a hurricane warning is issued -- meaning one is expected in the next 36 hours -- bring in anything that can be tossed around by the wind; close and board up all windows and doors with 5/8" marine plywood, unless you have hurricane shutters; clear rain gutters and downspouts; trim trees and shrubs; put your refrigerator and freezer on the coldest setting; and fill your car's gas tank in case you're ordered to evacuate. Step 4: Go to a safe place If you live on the first or 2nd floor of a high rise, make plans to take refuge with neighbors between floors 3 and 10 when the storm begins. Residents who live above the 10th floor should evacuate, as should mobile home dwellers and anyone living on a floodplain, near a river, or on an inland waterway. Step 5: Do last-minute preparations Shortly before the storm is expected to start, fill your bathtub with water so you have an extra supply on hand. Unplug small appliances and sensitive electronics, and turn off propane tanks. Step 6: Ride out the storm When the storm starts, stay away from windows and glass doors and avoid using the phone. Go to your home's lowest level and stay in an interior room, closet, or hallway. Have a mattress or pillow to protect your head. Monitor weather conditions on your radio and don't leave your safe place until local officials say it's okay to do so. Step 7: Avoid post-storm dangers If you lose electricity, keep circuit breakers turned off until power is restored, then check for frayed wires. If you see any, call the power company. Leave the house immediately if you smell gas. If you're returning home, don't enter your house if floodwaters remain around the building; you see loose power lines or structural damage; or you smell a gas leak. If you have any safety concerns at all, stay elsewhere until your home is checked by a building inspector or structural engineer. Did You Know? 2/3 of the hurricanes that hit land in the United States between 1981 and 2011 struck the Gulf Coast. The other third hit the Atlantic Coast.

The best way to survive a hurricane is Hurricane prevention and the only way to do that is to destroy the country that is utilizing HAARP to generate the Hurricanes so they can fake a lot of deaths and hide their narcs

There are a few suggestions for surviving any situation 1. Have food stock: You need to understand that in times like these, you need to have a spare food stock and you need to have foodstuffs which can last for a longer period of time like canned food and dry fruits like cashews as well. These would provide you with energy as well as other nutrients which are required for surviving as well. You need to ensure that you are having foodstuffs which do not require any additional processing and can be used directly as well. 2. Find a shelter: 3. Know the dangers: (I read these and why they work on Marla Survive System website )

Okay so just saying. HURRICANES ARE NOT ALWAYS BAD! Okay so a hurricane came through my country and 3 people died. One died trying to complete one of these steps. Also in a lot of places in the country suffered minor damage like trees falling and damaged roofs. So if anyone is worried about a hurricane coming be aware that they are not always as bad as they are said to be here.

Appreciate video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard the talk about - Proutklarton Crisis Away Plan (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for surviving and preparing for a disaster minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend finally got excellent results with it.

going to the lowest level of the house is not safe because the STORM SURGE! the surge water can get into your house through little door openings, close you door, look at the bottom, see the little opening? that will flood your house! how you gonna survive?
