What are the dangers from a hurricane?

These are the main dangers from a hurricane:
  1. High winds.
  2. Heavy rains and flooding.
  3. Power outages.  This causes problems in your home, as well as shutting down commerce. I knew people in Cary during Hurricane Fran who had no electricity for 9 days.  Be prepared for at least that long.
  4. In some cases, the municipal water supply is compromised, so there is no drinking water. During Hurricane Fran, Cary had water but Zebulon did not.
Do anything you can do to protect your family and property from these hazards.
