15 things to remember when preparing for a hurricane

First of all let’s hope you never need this list, but in case you do, I hope it helps.

If you are reading this you either live in the hurricane belt, have family/friends that do or you have a morbid fascination with destructive hurricanes. Whatever your reason these are some of the things I recommend you prepare for in case you find yourself where I did in 2017 with Irma and Maria.

“The best way to help the Caribbean is to visit the Caribbean” – a post hurricane list of where to stay.

“The best way to help the Caribbean is to visit the Caribbean this winter”
This seems to be a rather controversial saying that has sparked many debates. Some say exposing visitors to the current status of the damaged islands will only hurt tourism, while others, like myself can only see the benefits of opening the islands up to visitors as soon as possible. My personal opinion is that we cannot afford not to. Tourism is what we are and what we do here in the Caribbean and further delaying our tourist season is only going to hurt our already fragile economies.
