Hurricanes and Your Car

Hurricane Disaster Preparedness Fonted Package

Extreme weather like hurricanes, tornadoes and thunderstorms can be both dangerous and destructive. And if you are caught outside of your house or too far from an evacuation shelter, the next best thing, is your car.

Believe it or not, your car is one of the safest places to be in a storm. If lightning were to hit, the electricity would likely be carried around the outside of the metal exterior on its way to the ground. However, it might blow out your tires or mess with your electrical system so if you think you've been hit while driving, pull over immediately, but stay inside until the weather passes.

And thanks to technology, today's vehicles are much improved when it comes to water getting inside your car, or possible flooding.
