Last year they said March (2007) was a little warmer and drier than normal Marches. Basically the max temp was 89 in Charleston, Min was 25 in Anderson... Warmest average was 60.8 in Charleston and coldest average was 56.8 in North Myrtle Beach...
explain in detail what you would do to prepare a hurricane plan for your family and your home?
Forget Candles they are hazardous because of potential gas leaks Use flashlights prefurably the LED type
Discuss the type of hazards that could affect your family. Know your home's vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind.
Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community.
Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet. These should be measured in tens of miles rather than hundreds of miles.
Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact.
they should have both a cell phone for you to call and a land line for the rest of the family to call this way you will have a open line to call
Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate. most public shelters will not allow pets but they are all required to accept service animals (seeing eye dogs seizure dogs etc.)
Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.
Check your insurance coverage - flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.
Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit.
Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with your smoke detectors.
Take First Aid, CPR and disaster preparedness classes.
