Intelligent Traveler: Tip of the Week

Due to Hurricane Irene affecting much of the Eastern United States this week, we thought a few hurricane safety tips would be appropriate:

– Follow weather forecasts and advice from local authorities.

– Stock up on supplies like water, non-perishable foods, batteries and a first aid kit.

– Don’t leave your secure area too soon.  The storm may have calmed down but you may be in the eye.  Wait for local authorities to give the all-clear signal.
