A year ago next week, people from New Jersey to Boston became familiar with a name they are unlikely to forget: Sandy.
The effects of Sandy have been widely documented by the news and other bloggers. So, as I send you these cautionary tales from my blog last month – Identity Theft on Campus and College Credit Card Debt – I would like to offer a few others.
3 Simple Hurricane Preparedness Tips
Fill your bathtub with water: This will allow you to scoop out water into your toilet so that you can flush it in the absence of running water.
Generators: Be mindful of carbon monoxide. A simple box fan near the exhaust of your generator can project the fumes away from you and your neighbors.
Write important phone numbers down: How many phone numbers on your phone do you have memorized? Write them down! You never know how a hurricane will play out.
When remembering Sandy and how close we all came to danger, think ahead on how to stay safe. Hurricane season continues through November.
