Are you serious!!! Would you like a little sugar with your cup of fear?
This is a chicken s#!t little hurricane which at best will be a weak cat 2 by landfall. You've obviously never been through a hurricane. You want
real life expectations?
Expect small limbs and branches of old trees to be down. Some larger trees with week root systems may be felled as well, possibly knocking out power
Expect a few roof shingles and poorly secured awings to be blown off of older buildings.
Expect minor street flooding in lower areas due to high winds and heavy rains.
Expect spotty power outages which in most areas will be restored within 24 to 48 hours.
My suggestion, Board your windows with at least 1/2 plywood. Have a generator with enough fuel to last about 4 to 5 days just in case to opperate
essential electronics and appliances (DO NOT KEEP INSIDE HOUSE). Have a chainsaw to remove fallen trees and branches. Have several cases of bottled
water for drinking and few buckets of tap water for toilet use. Have a large ice chest filled about 3/4 of the way with ice to keep perishable foods
fresh in the event of extended power lose. Have several good flashlights with fresh and spare batteries, and several large candles and matches. Invest
in a good storm radio to stay informed during power outage. Know the safest place in your home in the event of a tornado, usually the lowest central
most room of the house, preferably in a bathtub. Aftert that, use this time as an opportunity to catch up on some reading.
Be Safe, Stay inside, And Good Luck.
