Another hurricane is coming.
If you are on the road or in the vicinity, do not ignore maps and charts as they indicate the worst. Here are some tips to help you develop your skills for Mother Nature. I’ll throw it.
Pre-fill all gadgets
Do it now when you can!
This is especially important if you live in an area where energy is scarce.
Also, don’t forget to charge your portable battery packs and rechargeable batteries (you may not need them, but they can help keep your neighbors out of slavery).
- If power goes out, refill all equipment as much as possible. Also remember that this is a good time to top up your energy bank.
- It is recommended that you take the charger to UPS (uninterruptible power supply) if the charger or associated devices are damaged if the power goes out.
- If you have a gas generator, try it before you search. Try it, especially if you still have old gas (usually, this is not something you do at home).
Blow out the radio dust
The Internet may be turned off by phone and power, but the radio will continue to operate. If you have one, make sure the battery is new and know how to use it (a quick Google search to find a local radio station that you can adjust).
Be careful of the weather
This makes it possible to choose the right website. You can also link to local weather stations and news stations.
And here are some apps that can help you find the information

Understand the kit you don’t know how to use
Not sure how a portable battery pack, generator or new weather app works? It’s time to dump her and move on.
Download (and print) the manuals you need now.
If you have large, hard and weatherproof cases for your smartphone or tablet that you would not normally use, now is the time to wear them. Go ahead, no one will judge you!
If you do not have a custom case, it is best to use a zipper. And if you have one of the small silica gel bags that comes with all sorts of things, please help me to put one of them in the bag as it helps absorb the water that goes into the bag.

Back up your data
If you live in a flood-prone area, it is a good idea to back up your data if water reaches one or more of your devices.
Outdoor or cloud backup is required, but if you only have an external hard drive or USB key you will need to do so (put it in a waterproof bag to give you a chance to fight).
Check your car kit
Here is a quick checklist of things to consider if you need to hit the road to escape a hurricane.
- If you do not need to drive, do not drive
- Make sure you have a charger and cable for your mobile device
- Throw away blankets, drinks and treatments (if so)
Keep it dry and safe! Also, feel free to share any suggestions in the comments section below.
