So I asked my friends on the
hardy Katrina survivors, what advice they would share with those in ’s path. But I didn’t want the usual flashlight,
batteries, water, generator, gasoline tips.
Tell them something they don’t know, I asked, that helped get you
They didn’t disappoint.
-Outdoor solar lights can be brought in at night to light the indoors.
-When you video your home for insurance purposes beforehand, open drawers and closets so the contents are visible.
-Have a tire plug repair kit and pliers to pull out nails or screws, since debris in the roadway causes flats and leaks that are tough to repair when everything is closed.
-Extend your cell phone battery by texting instead of calling and turning off internet/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/GPS connections.
