Having an evacuation plan is an important part of your hurricane preparedness. You may need your car for evacuation purposes after most of the risky weather has passed. Follow these simple steps to ensure your car is safe during and after a hurricane.
Remember to fuel up before the storm hits as gas stations may not be open immediately after the passing of a hurricane.
Where to park
Ensure that you park your car in an area that will protect it from missile damage and flood waters. Parking your car indoors is ideal during hurricanes but if that’s not possible, parking your car next to a building can shield it from some of the harsh weather. Look for high ground. Avoid parking your cars in low-lying flood-prone areas. Do not park under trees or power poles that can be blown down.
License and Registration Please
That’s right, these are important documents that you will need to secure during the storm. Store your keys and documentation in a waterproof casing place them in a safe but easily accessed place in case of emergency.
