We stay ready for hurricanes.

After living in this area for over 40 years, you get accustomed to all kinds of storms.

Unless it is Cat3 or better, we just hunker down.
Over Cat3, it would be time to head to higher ground.

We live in the eastern part of Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay.

I also have properties on the coast (for work) that I need to keep an eye on.

For my house though - the first layer of basic preps is enough. (Charlotte area, NC) I grew up with hurricanes on the South Texas coast.

And I'm about 14ft above flood plane - if it gets that high, we have bigger problems :D:

I'll be flying down there today to get the properties in order. Good thing for this board. Being in Texas, I often forget about hurricanes. I need to have my guys down there watch the news. TP

Started a thread about this before I seen this one...
If you are in the vicinity start acting today, don't wait!
It might not do anything but at least you will be ready...
Let's keep these threads going for now...

Everybody in the vicinity needs to start preparing today!
Even if you've been thru one of these things now is the time
to start preparing, as I stated in the other thread you might
not get anything but at least you will be prepared...
Let's keep these going for now...

Already prepared for hurricane season, started back in March. All I'll do now is make sure both vehicles keep the tanks full and top off my fuel storage in the shed. Tested the generator a couple weeks ago. Food/water preps good to go. Had two "questionable" trees in my yard cut down last month.

I'm far enough inland that in reality I only have to worry about wind damge to the roof shingles and power outages. Flodding not a concern unless you get caught out in it when the roads get river-like for a while.

Have all my canned food, bottled water, extra propane, etc. Always prepared, but this year we have a Winnebago with a nice generator in case we lose power. Just have to go over and get it from inside storage, once a storm goes through. :thumb:

I just heard Charleston SC or even NC coast as a possible Cat 3...more then enough to stay sharp about.
Yep, the weather man here said he is calling for a cat 2 but he
believes that it will probably be a cat 3...I've been in two of these
things (Can't remember the names, I'll ask the Lady of the house)
and it was really hairy there for awhile. That's why I'd like us that's
in the general area to start paying heed. It's not being paranoid
it's just being aware of the situation...
