As you may be aware, I went to high school in Bermuda. The first week we moved down there, before we were even unpacked we had a hurricane. I still remember my mother having us sleep under the dining room table, with the house completely boarded up. We had hurricane shutters that made the whole house seem like it was in the middle of the night even during the day!

Hurricanes are nothing to take lightly. Luckily we are given ample notice if a hurricane were to come up in the area. Here are suggestions on how to prepare should a hurricane approach where you live.
