In the wake of Hurricane Irma last year, millions of Floridians were left without power. For thousands, the power outages lasted for more than a week. Thousands of residents of Puerto Rico still had no electricity when Christmas arrived, more than three months after Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on the island.

With that in mind, it’s important that you take the necessary precautions to keep you and your family safe and out of harm’s way. It’s best to think of preparations now, because if your mind is in a fog, the opportunity to be ready for a severe storm could be mist!
