Palm Beach Hurricane Supply List

Posted on behalf of Gordon & Doner on Apr 11, 2013 in Insurance Claims


A report released by Colorado State University predicted that up to 18 tropical storms may earn a name this upcoming 2013-2014 hurricane season.  Another prediction shows that nine storms may develop hurricane strength winds and four could become a category three or higher.

From 2008-2010 there was 20 tropical storms and hurricanes that struck Florida, some of which caused damage, and some of which caused minor damage. In any case, the strong force of a hurricane is nothing to take lightly. Thus, we have put together a hurricane supply list to keep our residence safe and prepared for hurricanes.

Some necessities may include:

Water

  • A minimum of one gallon per day, per person

Food

  • Canned foods including meats, fruits and vegetables are recommended, however peanut butter and trail mix also provide an excellent source of nutrients

First Aid

  • Band-Aids, gauze, latex gloves
  • Antibiotics, alcohol pads, moist towelettes
  • Tweezers, needles, thread
  • Aspirin, anti-diarrhea medication, multi vitamins, antacids
  • Sunscreen

Tools & Supplies

  • Flashlight
  • Radio
  • Batteries
  • Matches
  • Rain Gear
  • Duct tape
  • Multi-Purpose tools
  • Paper and pens
  • Manual can opener

Clothing

  • Closed toed shoes
  • Comfortable clothes
  • Surgical mask
  • Work gloves
  • Hat

Of course, there are many additional necessities that individuals may require, however we must remember to keep our hurricane supply kit small and easy to carry.  It is also recommended to carry extra spending cash, mobile phone batteries, and supplies for babies, elderly and pets, along with simple games to entertain.

As our Hurricane Preparedness Week is approaching, we are also preparing our Florida property damage and homeowners insurance claim team, to prepare for the disasters that may come.  If your home sustains property damage due to a hurricane or tropical storm, we welcome you to contact our West Palm Beach homeowner's insurance claim attorneys for a free consultation concerning your property damage.
