Preparing For Irma What You Need To Know

Preparing For Irma What You Need To Know

As Hurricane Irma gains strength and moves across the Atlantic Ocean, some residents in Northeast Florida have begun preparing for the storm. If you live in Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island ,Nocatee, or St John's County then it may be wise to start stocking up on supplies like water, food, gas and sandbags. Those who own Real Estate know just how dangerous a storm like Hurricane Irma can be not only to their property but also to their safety in general. Homeowners especially need to take this seriously and do their best to make their homes secure and remain vigilant and stay alert to local weather and news. Its important to be fully prepared for the worst even if the projections indicate the storm may not make it to Jacksonville. 

The National Hurricane Center suggests the following materials:

Water: At least 1 gallon of water per person/ animal per day for at least 3 days.

Food: At least a 3-day supply of non-perishable food.

Radio: A battery-powered radio with NOAA weather radio tone alert and extra batteries.

Flashlight: Make sure you have extra batteries as well.

First Aid Kit

Manual can opener: If the electricity is out, you would need some way to open your canned food.

Cellphone: Make sure you have extra battery packs or a solar charger to keep your phone on.

Prescription medications



**Remember being overly prepared is far better than be under prepared when any natural disaster may be looming! Be smart and stay safe!
