Hurricane Season 2024: Community, Preparedness, and Peace of Mind in Jupiter, Florida

Hurricane Season 2024: Community, Preparedness, and Peace of Mind in Jupiter, Florida

As Jupiter, Florida natives, we have been preparing for hurricane season every year, for our entire lives. As a Realtors we have been lucky to welcome many out of staters to Florida over the years. For those who haven’t lived through a Hurricane Season, this can be a stressful time. However, being prepared is more than half the battle. Preparing early is key!

There are lots of Hurricane Guides online. I suggest visiting the website for the town/city you live in. That will be the most helpful and have local information for you. You can find Jupiter, Florida’s Hurricane Preparedness Guides here: https://www.jupiter.fl.us/1915/Hurricane-Flood-Guide

Making sure you have plenty of medications, pet supplies and non-perishables on hand, as well as items that make life a little more enjoyable when the power is out, should be at the top of your list.

Being neighborly during hurricane season is important for several reasons:
1. Safety and Support: Hurricanes can cause significant damage, power outages, and flooding. Neighbors can help each other by sharing resources, providing shelter, and offering emotional support during and after the storm.

2. Emergency Preparedness: Working together, neighbors can ensure that everyone is adequately prepared. This includes sharing information about evacuation routes, emergency contacts, and local shelters.

3. Resource Sharing: During and after a hurricane, resources like food, water, and medical supplies might be scarce. Neighbors can pool resources to ensure everyone has what they need to get through the crisis.

4. Communication: Keeping in touch with neighbors can help spread important information quickly. This includes updates on the storm’s progress, changes in
evacuation orders, and locations of emergency services.

5. Recovery Efforts: After the hurricane passes, the recovery process can be long and arduous. Neighbors can assist each other in cleaning up debris, making minor repairs, and providing support to those who may have suffered more severe damage.

6. Mental Health: The stress and anxiety caused by hurricanes can be overwhelming. Having a supportive community can help alleviate some of this stress and provide a sense of normalcy and camaraderie.

7. Vulnerable Populations: Neighbors can help look out for those who are more vulnerable, such as the elderly, disabled, or those with young children, ensuring they receive the help and support they need.

If we all just watch out for each other, we will all be ok! Please feel free to reach out to any of us on the Sean Underwood Team with Hurricane Season questions or concerns. We’re always glad to hear from you and more than willing to help out!
