American Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country, and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of roughly 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross.

If you plan to ride out a hurricane in your home, make sure it is in good repair and up to local hurricane building code specifications. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels to board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is the most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to withstand high winds.
https://rdcrss.org/3v37ZiS
Si planea resistir un huracán en su hogar, asegúrese de que esté en buenas condiciones y que cumpla con las especificaciones del código de construcción de huracanes local. Tenga los paneles de madera contrachapada, acero o aluminio adecuados para tapar las ventanas y puertas. Recuerde, la puerta del garaje es la parte más vulnerable de la casa, por lo que debe poder soportar vientos fuertes.
