With the devastation of Superstorm Sandy last year, we all know that it only takes one major storm to cause serious destruction to homes and businesses. This year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is forecasting an active hurricane season, with the likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms in 2013.
GEICO has outlined several hurricane preparedness tips to help you protect yourself, your loved ones and your property during the hurricane season. For instance, do you have an out-of-town emergency contact? If not, now’s the time to set one up, so they know your whereabouts in case of a storm.
I’ve never experienced a hurricane up close, thank goodness. But thanks to GEICO, I now have some guidance that might help me survive one.
Do you have any other preparedness tips? Please share in the comments below.
