Hurricane preparedness, like most Floridians, is something we have not had to even think about in many years now. So, we have been lax. Now, my children will learn exactly what I do each year to get prepared. Tomorrow I will post some info on hurricane preparedness. Right now, even with just a depression, this system is really large and 7 inches of rain is a lot of rain in Florida. We are not in a flood prone area, but all areas will be susceptible to tornadoes.
Also, I just heard on the news that Zika has now spread to the Tampa Bay area. This is a huge concern, especially with a tropical system approaching, and standing water that will likely be left behind. I took a CEU class on Zika, and I was amazed how much we really are not sure yet of this disease. So, as part of hurricane preparedness I will be posting mosquito control, with a focus on Zika prevention for lay people. Stay tuned!
