Hurricane season officially begins in 24 hours and many are doing nothing about it.

I was watching the weather channel yesterday to see what the weekend would be like and was surprised to learn that the price of oil is being blamed for people’s lack of preparation leading up to hurricane season.

According to the broadcaster, 50% of people living in areas that are most likely to be hit by hurricanes have not conducted any disaster planning whatsoever. Of people surveyed, 30% admitted that they will wait until they hear warnings on the television before they do anything. The report said that this is the first time since Huricanes Katrina and Rita struck, that people were so poorly prepared.

One very interesting fact that 95% of people do not realize is that garages are the most vulnerable area of a dwelling to be hit by a Hurricane. The Hurricane will tear off the roof of the house right after gaining access to the property through the garage. We would urge all of our readers living in areas susceptible to hurricanes to make sure that their garages are well secured. Times may be tight and the cost of fuel is becoming more and more burdensome but there is no point losing your house when you just may have been able to prevent it.

If you didn’t realize this fact about your garage, check it out today. Time may be running out.
