Houston it’s Hurricane Season – Your Preparation Emergency List

Houston it’s Hurricane Season – Your Preparation Emergency List
Hey Houston, it’s hurricane season. Don’t be a dolt and wait until the last minute. Get what you need now.

At the very least, go pick up a few big jugs of water from the grocery store next time you’re out, and some canned food.

Here’s a more complete list (from ready.gov):

  1. Water – one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation

  2. Food – at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food

  3. Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert

  4. Flashlight

  5. First aid kit

  6. Extra batteries

  7. Whistle to signal for help

  8. Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place

  9. Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation

  10. Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities

  11. Manual can opener for food

  12. Local maps

  13. Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery

I'm Allen ... nice to meet you. I was born and raised here in the Houston Heights. I went to school here from Elementary to High School and off to U of H. I love to blog, although i'm not that great at it. It's much harder then I thought. I like to play chess, meditate, read and enjoy fishing too (one time I caught a big shark!). My grandpa bought his house on 26th street in the Houston Heights for $55K in 1965 on a double lot, can you believe that?! Things sure have changed here for the better. I like to inspire folks with positive messages, and I hope to change the world. I volunteer at Divina Providence church, helping abused children. Someone helped me (Mr. Leonard Davis) years ago, so i'm paying the universe back. I was a kid with little direction, and left home at 14 years old. I never had a father, or father figure, in fact I never even seen a picture of my father. I was raised by my mother, who happens to be lesbian. She did her absolute best, but with food stamps & section 8, she can only do so much. Surrounded with turmoil & drugs all around me, somehow I made it thru. I think seeing how drugs can affect a person with my own two eyes, really scared me as a child. So it's fair to say I have had my fair share of problems. I don't share these issues to make you sad, I hope that it reaches a child out there to inspire him or her & that you can make something of yourself, even when you are given the worst situations. I also hope to inspire folks who are doing well in life. Give back to society with your time and or any efforts you can provide. I am a true example that one person (Mr.Davis) can make a difference in the universe. Luckily by the grace of God, Mr. Davis helped me. He was a pasture at a church, & took notice of me. It is super strange how one single person, can change the universe. Thank God
