AARP Florida State Director Jeff Johnson issued this statement today about the impact of Hurricane Dorian on The Bahamas:
Before storing any gasoline-powered equipment, it should be properly maintained. That includes cleaning the equipment inside and out, removing or disconnecting the battery, changing the engine oil and – this is important – adding stabilizer to the fuel.
Surge is not limited only to areas on a beach – incoming tides and wind can drive seawater into coastal canals, the Intracoastal Waterway and inland rivers and creeks.
A portable or fixed standby electrical generator can be a big help after a hurricane. But AARP’s Florida state director urged Floridians to take care when using electrical power generators for backup power during power outages as the 2019 hurricane season ramps up.
Communities often come together after disasters to help each other, not only with the physical tasks, but also for emotional support.
