Hurricane Florence recently hit the Carolinas, here in the United States, and caused devastating damages from high winds, flooding, and local tornadoes. For several days leading up to the storm, we all watched and waited as meteorologists tracked the storm system and kept us all informed. I live in South Carolina and I have family members and close friends throughout South Carolina, as well as North Carolina. We were all engaged in preparedness activities on some level. In this podcast episode, I focus my discussion on my experience with the elderly population around me during this weather event. Additionally, I share with you my key takaways from this experience, including some ideas and tips that you can apply in a preparedness program for your area as well.
