Is Your Van Buren Home or Business Prepared?

The Hurricane Season of 2022 never got going.  Since 1950, there have only been 6 hurricane seasons with less Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) in the Atlantic.  The 2.8 units of ACE, through August 25th, make 2022 the slowest start to a hurricane season since 1988.  Looking ahead to September and October, should we expect things to change?  Not likely.  Slow August activity is typically followed by less activity in September and October.  What does this mean for Northwest Arkansas?  Possibly less chance for heavy rains.  SERVPRO of South Washington & Crawford Counties believes this is the right time to prepare.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic and Caribbean begins on June 1 and ends on November 30.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests planning for hurricanes.  These four topics will help guide your preparation.

  • Write down emergency phone numbers. Program these numbers in your cell phone and keep a hard copy on the refrigerator.
  • Assemble an emergency supply kit. The kit should include medicines, food and water, flashlights, extra batteries, safety and personal items and important documents such as identification, passports, wills, medical documents
  • Locate the shelter nearest your home. Planning different routes to the shelter will save you time if roads are closed.
  • Remember your pets. Identify shelters and hotels that are pet friendly.  You may have to rely on an out of town friend or relative
