A Mandatory Evacuation Leaves Your Home Unattended, or Does It?

When a mandatory evacuation is called for, it's hard to leave your home and business behind. Keep an eye on the homefront with Honeywell Total Connect!

Hurricane Hermine, go away!

This is what we are dealing with in Myrtle Beach right now as Hurricane Hermine is rolling in this Friday afternoon.

Pretty scary road conditions, right? And according to the local Myrtle Beach news stations and the Weather Channel, this is JUST the beginning.

This is also ‘just’ a category 1 hurricane turned tropical storm by the time it fully hits the Grand Strand.

Are you prepared for when the next storm hits?

What if the next one is the big one?

Do you know what to do and how to prepare?

When The Big One Hits; You Might Encounter a Mandatory Evacuation.

If you are new to the area or if you’ve never lived in a hurricane zone before now, you might never have experienced a mandatory evacuation before and let us tell you; it’s scary to leave everything you have behind – everything but what fits into your car.

Depending on where you live and your flood zone, you might be one of the first families asked to leave.

There are many ways to prepare for a possible evacuation and all we can say is; plan, prepare and be ready!

But once you leave… it might be a while before you allowed back into your neighborhood!

How Will You Know What’s Happening at Home?

Well, most people don’t know how things are back home once they evacuate! It’s one of the more scary things to encounter during hurricane season – beside losing power, flash floods, falling trees and loss of electricity… just to name a few things that can go wrong.

Here’s another scary thing about the mandatory evacuation; your neighbors will be evacuating as well and no one can keep an eye on your home and your property, or can they?

Through the mobile app you will be notified of windows breaking, zones going out and if you have security cameras installed, you can do a physical check on your property as well!

You can do this from your phone or tablet and from the safety of a dry, warm hotel room or a relatives’ home; far, far away from the path of the destructive hurricane!

SIDE NOTE:

If you are a business owner, you will most likely have additional worries and concerns during a mandatory evacuation! It’s imperative to the continued success of your business that you not only have a security system in place during the next hurricane that rolls in, but that you also have a set of security cameras to record and show you in real time what’s happening in your business.

The only world we need to mention is ‘looting‘ and you’ll know what we are talking about!
