Hurricanes: If you live in a hurricane-prone region, are you prepared?

Hurricane Harvey has unleashed devastation and misery on Houston, Texas and the surrounding coastal area.  And the worst may be yet to come, with a possible additional 24 inches of rain forecasted through Wednesday.  Dr. Greg Postel, hurricane specialist for The Weather Channel, said flooding in the Houston area "could be the worst flooding disaster in U.S. history."

Houston' Hobby Airport yesterday morning.
Devastation.  Runways flooded.

If you live in a hurricane-prone area, do you have an emergency preparedness plan in the event of a hurricane?  If not, make a plan now now.  Not tomorrow, but today.   The lives of yourself and your loved ones, including pets, just may depend on it.
