Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma moved farther west and the weather that we were expecting to affect us in NC did not hit us. NC received rain starting yesterday afternoon, but did not receive the high winds and heavy rains as anticipated. The most dangerous part of the storm for me was driving to work this morning; having to pay attention where others were not. However, TS Jose is still lingering out in the Atlantic Ocean.
TS Jose is on track to circle around and start making it’s way towards the eastern coast of the United States. The 5-day track forecast is showing Jose with a northerly turn and possibly staying away from land. The current wind speeds maintained by Jose classify it as a Tropical Storm, but forecasts are for the wind speeds to increase to at least a Category 2 Hurricane. It is best to keep an eye on Jose to make sure that you are not heavily affected by the storm.
During this break in weather patterns, it is advisable to inventory and replenish your emergency kits. Take your inventory sheet and check your items, as well as ensure that the items that require periodic maintenance are in working operation. Replenish your items that were used, and make sure your batteries are all good!
It is best to be proactive instead of reactive in any emergency situation; always be prepared, always be aware…..
