It’s that time of year again for many residents along the East Coast of the United States. Hurricane Season is upon us, and we are getting into the thick of it with the threat of the first Hurricane of the season quickly approaching Florida. But all around the country, Mother Nature has left many homeowners and renters without power on many occasions. So to help you stay prepared, we’ve put together this list of power outage essentials.
2022 was an incredibly tough Hurricane season for the folks in South Florida. Hurricane Ian came rolling onto the Gulf Coast as a category 5 hurricane, leaving behind an unprecedented amount of damage to Southwest Florida.
Hurricane Season runs nearly half the year, from June 1st through November 30th, each year. The warmer months tend to see the most activity, August thru October. When a hurricane hits, it can be days and sometimes weeks before those affected have power, water or access to gas and food. It’s so important to take all of the proper precautions and heed to all warnings when you are in the projected path or cone of a storm.
After going through Hurricane Ian last year, one of the most important items in a Hurricane Preparedness kit was a radio. When you lose power you lose internet and cable. Radio is in some instances the only source you have to find information leading up to, during, and especially after the storm.
So, what are the most important things to have on hand in the event of a storm-related power outage? I’ve put together a list of the 12 power outage essentials you will not want to be without.
