Fall weather is just as unpredictable and unstable as spring – and there can be just as many hurricanes. Hurricane season is still a threat for cities along the Eastern coast of the US during the fall months. It’s not uncommon for the East coast to be hit hard with torrential downpours and strong winds as a hurricane works its way up the coast.
For those in the Northeast thinking that the weather always subsides by the time the storm reaches northern waters – think again. It is always a good idea to prepare ahead of time for any type of storm, especially hurricanes.
Preparing to Wait It Out
Many times, especially for East coast residents, it will not be required for residents to evacuate an area. If you choose to stay in your home or your local government decides it is not necessary to leave, it’s important to prepare your home for the approaching storm.
Take Action Now
Homeowners will often wait until the last minute to prepare for a hurricane, especially on the East coast. Although there is always the off chance that the brunt of the storm may miss key cities such as Boston, Portland, Providence, and New York City, it helps to plan ahead.
