If you live anywhere near the Eastern shore of the United States you have a very chance of encountering a hurricane. I believe hurricane season usually happens around the September and part of October time of year. Hurricanes are weather natural events that people try to predict, but not always done with certainty. Hurricanes move along at their own pace and their paths are governed by wind and the strength of the storm. I don’t know if there is any place that is perfectly protected from hurricanes. However, depending on the strength of them, you need to be protected. I have seen trees uprooted, wires down and street lights ripped out from their connections to land anywhere. Many years ago a hurricane named Hugo ripped through South Carolina. I never thought a hurricane could be that bad. I went to Sumter, South Carolina after the hurricane hit and saw incredible devastation. All the tress were “curved” to the right instead of standing straight up. The water situation was unusable. Street lights were down and straddled everywhere. Currently the United States is bracing for hurricane Dorian. At first it was projected to hit Florida, but I believe it missed that state and is now alleged to be coming into North Carolina. Here is the latest news:
Depending on the strength of the storm, your preparation needs to be on point. If a storm moves in with enough strength behind it you could lose everything. The good news is that Dorian is supposed to be in a much weaker state now. That doesn’t mean that it still can’t cause damage. Since I live in Pennsylvania there is a chance the storm could hit me as well. I have dealt with hurricanes before, and I will try to prepare for this one just in case it comes here. Mother nature can be “so unpredictable.” I hope all is well where you are. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
