A Sad Day in History for the Mississippi Coast

Today marks the 43rd year since the Mississippi Coast was struck by Hurricane Camille.  With winds of over 200 mph and a tidal surge of over 20 ft, many lives were lost and millions of dollars of property, homes and businesses were destroyed.  And the disasters just keep coming - extreme weather, threats of fire and earthquake, and worse --- we need to be prepared at all times!

FEMA has a number of good resources to assist and recommends the following:
+ FAMILY COMMUNICATION PLAN - know how you will contact family members
+ FAMILY EMERGENCY NUMBERS - have a handy list of important phone numbers for evacuation sites, policy and fire, schools and doctors, so you know who to contact
+ CARING FOR ANIMALS - know how you will care for your pets
+ INDIVIDUALS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS - have a plan to taking care of loved ones with special needs
+ PLAN FOR LOCATIONS - know where you will go if you need to evacuate
+ BASIC DISASTER SUPPLY KIT - have critical supplies on hand
+ NATURAL DISASTERS - stay informed on appropriate preparation and response for severe weather and wildfires
