Are you ready?

Hurricane season (lLivescience.com) officially started June 1 (goes through November 30). While you can’t prepare for every disaster, TDHCA’s Disaster Relief Resources is a great online resource for guidance on housing, lost paperwork, road conditions, and other general tips in the event that you find yourself unexpectedly leaving home.

The TDHCA Disaster Relief Resources page breaks down information for individuals, families, rental property owners (for TDHCA-monitored properties), and nonprofits. For those in federally declared disaster areas there are helpful links to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA.gov), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD.gov), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA.gov), and the Texas General Land Office (GLO.Texas.gov).

You should also have weather-related websites bookmarked on your internet browser (computer or phone) in case of important messaging (National Weather Service {Weather.gov}, FEMA Region 6 {FEMA.gov}, Texas Department of Transportation Drive Texas {DriveTexas.org}, local news stations) related to your local weather conditions.

There is a motto in the emergency management world which states “don’t be scared; be prepared.” So, take the time now, before disaster strikes, to formulate a plan for you and your household. Be ready in case you need to act quickly and remember these helpful online resources.
