Here are some very timely and helpful hints from the local chapter of the Better Business Bureau on how to be prepared for an emergency situation:
In Texas, summer doesn’t just mean it’s time for vacations, it also brings hurricanes and the potential for severe storms. Hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. Better Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin urges families to prepare for the unexpected and devise their own emergency preparedness plans. It’s important to assess and prepare for their local disaster risks and unplanned emergencies.
