With hurricane season less than a month away, a Central Florida nonprofit organization is offering tips for hurricane preparation.
Habitat for Humanity recently opened a free session on hurricane preparedness to the public, providing information on making a plan, building a kit, and staying informed.
The organization offered tips from the City of Orlando’s Office of Emergency Management on what goes into a disaster kit, including one gallon of water per person per day for several days, nonperishable foods, prescription meds to last a week or so, flashlights, batteries, and cash.
Homeowners were also advised on how to file a claim with their home insurance agency.
Residents of Central Florida are already taking steps to prepare for hurricane season by getting their homes and properties ready and documenting their belongings.
With 13 named storms and two major hurricanes forecasted for this year, it’s important to be prepared.
Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 in Central Florida.
