Nelson added, “If you know who you’re playing in the sandbox with, you’ll work together better.”

Hurricanes pose a constant threat to the region and locals should always have a disaster kit on hand during the summer months.

Kits should be assembled in advance and contain a minimum of three days’ worth of food, one gallon of water per person per day, a flashlight and extra batteries and a first aid kit.

Though local officials and relief workers will be on scene after a disaster, it may take up to 72 hours to reach everyone.
