Hurricane Matthew strengthened overnight on its way to the heavily populated Atlantic coast. Here are the latest evacuation orders by state…More than 1.5 million Floridians are currently in evacuation zones.
Having to evacuate your home may be the worst thing you need to experience in your life. Hopefully the evacuation is organized and you have already planned ahead for a place to stay for the duration of the disaster. However, you know you can’t bring everything with you that you would like.
If you planned ahead, you have already made an emergency binder with all your important papers. You should also scan all your important and/or precious photos that are currently not in digital form.
Read this post on evacuation for more details. What if this was your home? How soon would you expect to return?
The severe impacts from this hurricane could lead to some locations being uninhabitable for weeks or months, the National Weather Service says.
Still the flooding is widespread and people are unable to return to their homes or places of business.
