The 2020 hurricane season is in full swing, and as storms threaten the US, it is important to have a safety plan. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted 13 to 19 named storms, six to 10 hurricanes including three to six major hurricanes this year.
No one can predict where these storms will hit, which is why it is important to be ready and have a plan. This year, hurricane plans include jugging a storm and a pandemic.
In the past, residents would prepare a "stay kit" if they planned to ride out a storm or a "go kit" should they decide to evacuate. This year, those kits will include hand sanitizer or alcohol-based sanitizing wipes, protective masks, a small bottle of bleach, and nitrile or latex gloves.
