When Disaster Strikes It’s (Almost) Too Late To Prepare!
Floods, Tropical Storms and Hurricanes
What do they have in common?
All of these are natural disasters for which you can prepare!
Newsflash – Many people do not prepare for natural disasters and thus when disaster strikes, these natural disaster can quickly turn into a tragedy for unprepared families!
Rain, Rain. Go Away!
The Grand Strand and Myrtle Beach has had their share of rain in the last year or so. We have Tropical Storm Julia bearing down on us this week and we had a visit from Hurricane Hermine on September 2, just about two weeks ago. And just last year, South Carolina was hit by what is now called ‘the historic 1000 year flood’ in the first few days of October.
Of course, who can forget what happened in Louisiana just last month (August 2016) – disaster struck, and struck hard for many families. The devastating news and incredibly sad media videos of the flood waters coming from Louisiana should serve as a reminder to everyone that disaster can and will strike – just like that!
