Hurricane Survival Tips

Looks like Hurricane Dennis will hit the US tomorrow afternoon. Over a million people have been told to evacuate but for those who will be home, please double check your family's emergency plan. If you have an elderly or disabled neighbor, please include them in your emergency plan. Great checklists and general disaster information at Hurricane Survival Guide or FEMA.

Remember that public evacuation centers do not accept pets. There are tips for pet owners at Pets and Hurricanes. As long as pets are caged, some shelters will make safe arrangements for their care outside of the emergency shelter for humans.

If you want to help, the American Red Cross and the Humane Society are non-profits that do much for disaster victims worldwide and are legit.
