Coastal Hampton Roads is a great place to work and live, especially during the summer months. There's so much to see and do! However, our area has had from time to time hurricanes, tropical storms, nor'easters and other challenges regarding the weather. Hurricane season started June 1st and ends Nov. 30th. Now is the time to get informed, make a plan and know your evacuation zone and route. These valuable tips come from vbgov.com.
Have a family emergency plan. Talk to your children. Everyone should know what to do in case family members are not together when severe weather happens.
Make sure you have a safe place to go when severe thunderstorm or tornado warnings are issued. Safe areas include basements and interior rooms such as bathrooms or closets on the lowest level of a sturdy building. Stay away from windows. If outside, don't seek shelter under trees.
Talk to your insurance agent about low-cost flood insurance policy options or go to floodsmart.gov.
Know your evacuation zone and evacuation route in case you are to advised to leave the area.
