Destin, FL (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Hurricane Emilia is the first major hurricane (category 4) to develop this hurricane season. Although it is unsure yet if Emilia will make landfall (and if it will still be powerful when it does), it should still be taken seriously as a potential threat. Disaster Relief Supply, the emergency preparedness store, is encouraging West Coast customers not to hesitate on securing emergency supplies including generators, emergency kits, ready to eat meals, and chainsaws.
In recent years, the focus of Hurricane Season has been on the Southeast United States. In 92’ Andrew struck South Florida, 95’ brought Opal, Charley in 2004, and most publicized Katrina in 2005 which greatly affected Louisiana, Mississippi, and the surrounding areas to become one of the worst Disasters in U.S. History (noaa.gov). A Hurricane off the Pacific coast is unlikely, but still possible. Residents, homeowners, and business owners, should be prepared with supplies like emergency food, generators, and water storage. Also, with coastal flooding a major concern, sandbags, waterproof safes, and even life rafts should also be readily available.
The Disaster Relief Supply online store is focused on providing the right items for hurricane preparedness. Since the start of hurricane season, site managers have initiated multiple price drops, sales, and free shipping promotions to make it easier for residents in at-risk areas to purchase the items they needs.
