With ocean temperature rising year by year possibly from the result of El Nino or from the result of global warming that shifts the jet stream in an unpredictable way, violent storms are more frequent. Cities and towns along the shorelines are more susceptible to huge waves, winds of up to 156mph, and downpour of heavy rain.
Water source can also be contaminated after a hurricane event and buildings may be damaged. Downed power lines and trees can also hamper rescuers' operation, which means less of a chance of reaching you. Scattered debris can be a hazard as they are blown throughout the streets. What's worse is the possibility of flood that can put your house underwater while the basic necessities of life are rendered useless.
For the next 72 hours, you are on your own. Danger is everywhere, as you strive to fight off possible infections from contaminated water and food. The risk of hypothermia also increases if your shelter has been damaged by flood or by wind while heavy rainfall continues to pummel the area.
Staying dry, obtaining fresh water and food, and signalling for help - these are the essential responsibilities that you are tasked with.
But don't worry! This is why having our Guardian Survival Gear - Tornado Emergency Kit is a smart investment because you are prepared in advance to rescue yourself and help yourself through tough times ahead!
During the hurricane event, one of the most critical utilities that usually goes out first is electricity. Power lines are connected through telephone poles, which are extremely vulnerable to powerful winds. Debris from damaged houses, fallen signs, and broken tree branches can damage power lines. Water also conducts electricity extremely well, which can easily fry unprotected power relay stations and generators creating rolling blackouts to regions of the city or town.
Modern life depends heavily on electricity, as many of our electronic devices require power in order to function. Now imagine it's middle of the night and you've lost power to your house. The hurricane gains strength and pummels the building. Your food in the fridge won't last long if power doesn't come back on. Your heater doesn't work. You can't see in the dark. You can't go online to find new information regarding the storm. What's worse is that the area is flooded as city sewage system can't cope with the heavy rain. Raw sewage flows into your home, causing damages and increasing the risk of contamination.
What can you do? Well, you can start by thinking ahead and obtain our survival kit! It has the basic necessities that you will need in order to withstand the challenges after the storm.
