Hurricane’s such as Hurricane Florence can have nationwide effects.
Choose Danley 911 to Protect Your Home
Worried about Hurricane Florence? With models predicting landfall on the East Coast, a hit, even far down the coast, can have a dramatic impact on us, even in New Jersey. Of course, as we learned from Superstorm Sandy, being outside of the normal hurricane impact zone is not enough to keep us safe. That is why the team at Danley 911 is monitoring Florence and the other developing storms and is ready to mobilize to help people throughout our service area.
With a record number of storms developing in the tropics right now, and no projected end to these conditions in sight, it is looking like this will be one of the most devastating hurricane seasons in memory. Even if we manage to escape damage from Florence, it remains to be seen what will happen with this season’s other tropical storms. Faced with conditions like this, being worried is understandable. However, you do not have to sit back and do nothing. Plan ahead to minimize the storm’s impact on you.
You may wonder how an indirect hit can have serious consequences for us. Last year’s Hurricane Harvey flooded the entire city of Houston, an area larger than all of New Jersey, despite hitting hundreds of miles down the coast. While hurricane projections focus on where the eye of the storm will hit, much of the damage of a hurricane is due to storm surge, high winds, and flooding far away from the hurricane’s eye. In fact, in terms of long-term damage, a large lower category storm can be even more catastrophic than a Cat 4 or Cat 5 storm.
If you do rely on generators for power during outages, keep in mind that service people will be called to where the storm made landfall. Rental generators will also be sent to where they are most needed. To prepare ahead, you should have your generators inspected and maintained before the storm can make landfall, to help ensure that you do not experience any disruptions in service because of the storm.
