June 1st was the official start of hurricane season, and now is a great time to make a plan to deal with weather emergencies. The FTC offers information so you can prepare ahead of time and are ready when extreme weather hits, especially this year with the added concern of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hurricanes in our area may bring heavy rainfall, high winds, tornadoes and over flooded ponds. Although here in The Villages, they run the water sprinklers on the golf courses and in other areas to bring the retention pond levels down so they can handle the heavy rainfall. And when extreme weather hits, you may need to leave your home on short notice.

The FTC’s site, Dealing with Weather Emergencies, has practical tips to help you prepare for, deal with, and recover from a weather emergency. The time to prepare is now — make a plan, check your insurance, and consolidate financial information and important documents so they are ready to go, and more.

Some additional information to review:


Note About Homes in The Villages: Our homes were built post Hurricane Andrew so were built with more stringent building codes and can withstand high wind gusts and sustained winds, and they have survived many hurricanes with minimal if any damage to homes. Most hurricanes have downed trees, but The Villages has been quick to clear roads and remove storm debris. However, if you live alone, you might want to find friends to weather the storm with so you aren't alone, just continue to practice COVID-19 precautions (masks, distancing, sanitizing, hand washing...).
