1、 Collect supplies and stay away from storm surges
The cause of a hurricane is the tropical disturbance on the sea caused by warm and humid air currents and warm sea water. Once the wind and pressure reach the optimum conditions, it will form a strong rotating wind and rain, form water waves, and go to a mess. Hurricane is the most violent storm in nature. Its strength is equal to that of nuclear bomb. The destructive power of hurricane should not be underestimated.
If you and your friends are in a house in a hurricane danger zone, a tropical storm is forming and is rapidly strengthening overnight, or has intensified into a strong hurricane. We should pay attention to the trend of the storm and try to collect information to protect ourselves.
If you get an emergency radio message that people have to evacuate and don’t want to survive a hurricane, you’ve received a warning that your life is in danger. The hurricane was powerful enough to blow the house to pieces. Hurricanes will increase rapidly. As long as the speed exceeds 56 km / h in one day, it is difficult to accurately forecast. The house is within five kilometers of the coast and is in immediate danger of a storm surge.
The danger of storm surge: a storm surge is when a hurricane on the sea blows water to land for hours or even days before a hurricane actually lands. It will send 5.5-meter-high waves into communities, and some state agencies will determine which areas are likely to experience storm surges and how far they have to go to stay away from hurricanes. When storm surges and hurricanes come, people have to be more than 30 kilometers away from the coast to escape from the big waves. The most terrible thing is that storm surges always come before hurricanes land, and it is completely impossible to predict how soon they will arrive.
Preparation: rope, rain shoes, raincoat, light compressed dry food, enough water, flashlight, gauze, alcohol.
Ropes have always been useful. Rain shoes, raincoats, things you may need in the next 12 to 24 hours, only survival equipment and canned food, but the weight should be light. The most important thing is water. Bring as much water as possible. When a hurricane comes, the water source will be polluted, so you have to replenish water by yourself. Take a flashlight to make sure it works. Pack the supplies and get ready to drive away.
When a hurricane is about to land, it will produce a large storm surge, which may pour into 1.5-3 meters or even 6 meters high water. The storm surge will flow into the coast for several miles, and it will occur in a few minutes to a few hours, with the focus on evacuating before the hurricane strikes. The estimated landing time of the hurricane is within 1 hour, and the storm surge will rush in before the hurricane landing, so there is not much time left for people. Most of the hurricane victims were drowned, and most of them died of being trapped in their cars during the storm surge. The main highway is the fastest way to get out of the city and reach the Highlands, and the primary goal now is to stay as far away from the storm surge as possible.
How to cross the waterlogged Road:
If you drive too fast, you will slide on the water when the road has accumulated water. Car tires will start to float like boats. If you start to slide on the water, the best way is to let go of the gas and slow down the car
