South Florida, Are You Ready For Tropical Storm Erika?

(Source: Weather.com)
As we approach the peak of the hurricane season (September 13th), South Florida is facing the effects of our second tropical storm of the year. While most scenarios expect tropical storm Erika to narrowly miss the state of Florida late Sunday and Monday—continuing up the east coast and only granting us with heavy rains and damaging wind—some predict that Erika could make landfall on the southeastern tip of Florida as a category one hurricane.With most experts forecasting winds of up to 60 miles per hour in the event that Erika remains a tropical storm, major damage isn’t expected to occur. There is, however, a significant chance of the occurrence of sporadic power outages and minor damages caused by loose debris picked up by the wind.As most Floridians are well aware of, tropical storms and hurricanes can be rather unpredictable. Even the most unthreatening of tropical storms can quickly develop into a hurricane given the right conditions, like weak wind shear and warm waters. Erring on the side of caution is always the best way to prepare for any type of weather-related threat.Protect Your Exterior
Protect the exterior of your home from flying debris like tree limbs and unsecured outdoor furniture caused by tropical storm Erika’s winds by making sure that any loose items are moved indoors and weak foliage trimmed. It is also recommended that you relocate any cars or recreational vehicles to a location away from any trees or light posts in the event that they fall.Protect Your Interior
Protect the interior of your home by making sure that your standby generator has received its regularly scheduled maintenance so that your refrigerated items don’t spoil and you can maintain access to amenities like lights and air conditioning units. It is also best that you keep an inventory of all of your household items in the event that you need proof for insurance purposes.Sooner than later is always better when it comes to reviewing your evacuation plans and stocking up on the essentials like water, non-perishable groceries and gasoline. For a comprehensive list of best practices with regards to preparing your family, home and possessions for the effects of a hurricane or tropical storm, take a look at The Ultimate Hurricane Preparedness Guide.
