AARP Florida urges state residents to be prepared for devastating storms—and to remember that not all mishaps come from the weather itself. Falling tree limbs or ceilings, broken glass in standing water and mishandled generators all can cause injury or death.
Be ready by having three days’ worth of supplies, including clean water, nonperishable food, medicines and any needs for your pet. Remember, older adults may be particularly vulnerable if they have health conditions made worse by loss of power.
