Hurricane Florence is heading for the east coast of the United States and we hope all of those in the path of the hurricane do everything to stay safe. As residents of Florida, we know what it’s like to see one of these storms heading right for you. Just know that you all are on our minds and we hope for the best possible outcome.
We also realize there are a bunch of other people out there who aren’t affected by the hurricane. They have travel plans set for a once in a lifetime trip. Maybe it’s a trip to Walt Disney World with the kids for the first time or a honeymoon in Hawaii or a bucket list trip to see the temples of Southeast Asia. Whatever it is you have planned, there’s a good chance that if you have air travel planned in the U.S. during the next week or so, Florence is going to wreak havoc on those plans and that’s the main thing on your mind right now. I understand, it’s the difference between experiencing a tragedy and being affected by it. I totally get it.
There’s not much I can do for those in the path of the storm besides telling you to evacuate if advised, hunker down and be safe if you’re allowed to stay, and make sure you have plenty of fresh water, batteries and non-perishable food (and alcohol). For those who have travel plans affected by the storm, here are some tips of what you can do to make sure you’re able to go on that trip (and, quite frankly, if you even should).
