It's Hurricane Season!

August 29, 2005 is when this lovely picture above hit us at a 5. I posted it because no one living along the gulf should forget this. It's going on 4 years and people tend to relax and get lax after this amount of time. Realators and builders would love for everyone to forget this. Dh and I were driving around the other day and there are still plenty of reminders. Especially those who still have damaged houses with the count on them. It's the red x that shows the house was searched afterwards and how many people they found dead. I rode out Katrina and let me tell you, you believe in a higher power after that. You also know that after something that bad help doesn't come quickly. Especially when people are afraid to come to your state after the actions of others.
I am not going to post long lists of what you need and what you have to do but I will post you links with easy enough instructions.

Mississippi State Health Department's disaster preparedness.

MEMA-Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, very good site.

Tracking map -Free printable hurricane tracking map from the St. Petersburg Times.

Do Something is about different disasters and aid.

Flood Smart is from the National Flood Insurance Program. This is to determine your flood risk level.
