Hurricane Irma

This hurricane has officially hit a category 5. To give you an idea of the strength of this storm:

Harvey was a category 4.

Katrina and Andrew were a category 5 and Irma is at the moment is stronger than both of them.

This hurricane is going to cause absolute destruction when it hits. Puerto Rico (especially this beautiful isla)  Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Florida are all in it’s path. Here’s a checklist if you can afford these supplies.


Food

  • Bottled Water- a week’s supply minimum (One gallon daily per person)
  • Non perishable items that don’t require cooking ( Tuna, nuts, fruit cups, Cereal bars, peanut butter, crackers, dried fruits, canned vegetables, chili)
  • Dry pet food 
  • Packaged juices 
  • Powdered or canned milk 

Supplies

  • Manual can opener
  • Toilet paper 
  • Baby wipes ( this will make a great alternative for showers)
  • Batteries ( AAA, AA, 6V, C, and D)
  • Flash lights (if you have manual ones even better)
  • Battery powered radio 
  • Utility knife 
  • Waterproof matches 
  • 5 gallons of gas
  • Tampons and pads 
  • Portable phone charger fully charged)
  • Sand bags (redirects water and debris flow)
  • First aid kit
  • Blankets 
  • Rain gear - Ponchos, boots. (avoid umbrellas)
  • Medications 
  • Portable cooler

Documentation / Legal End

  • A closed water proof sealed container
  • Take pictures and send them to yourself in an email of the following: Drivers License, photo ID, social security numbers, medical insurance cards (of each person) 
  • Take photos of everything! Insurance companies are not your friends. Email everything to yourself. 
  • If you have young children and they are able to make sure they memorize your name, address, and phone number

Other tips: 

  • Before the hurricane hits fill up the bath tubs in your house (extra water for flushing the toilet) 
  • Bring any ornaments from outside inside 
  • Trim trees
  • Board your windows
  • Have a secure room that you an pile everyone ( has to have no windows) 

if you have any questions message me. Keep safe mi gente xx 

y'all hurricane irma IS the most powerful storm scientists have seen in over a decade and it’s already tearing through the carribean islands. they don’t have as much money and government help as the U.S does so Americans have to donate like hell to these islands. the islands that are currently being hit haven’t even responded to media outlets/ radios because that’s how fucking powerful it is. we already know the government is gonna do more to help the U.S but not so much with these islands. Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas and other carribeans islands are going to get hit the worse. we need to stand by them, pray for them, and donate as soon as we get information about donation organizations that will help the carribean islands. they need this.

anonymous asked:

Hi what can we do if we can't evacuate?

If you can’t evacuate here are some tips.

Buy life jackets immediately a lot of deaths are from drowning. If you have a kayak, canoe, life raft, keep these near you they can come in handy.

Do not swim. You will tire yourself out especially if currents are going against you.

Have ample flashlights on hand.

Once the hurricane passes. Get on top of your roofs. Use flashlights at night and if on hand any pots and pans during the day.

Tarp and rope. You can use tarp to make a temporary repair if anything comes down.

Do not turn the power on if there’s flooding!

Do no drink water that hasn’t been previously stored! Assume that all water has bacterial contaminations (yes this goes for tap water as well if you have no other choice boil it first)

Don’t pick up trees, wires, debris, nothing.

Do not use charcoal or generators indoors!

Sand bags can be used to help prevent flooding.

En Español:

Si no es possible para evacuar aquí hay algunos consejos:

Comprar chalecos salvavidas. Una gran cantidad de muertes son de ahogamiento. Si usted tienes un kayak, canoa, balsa salvavidas, mantener estos cerca de ti pueden ser utilizada en emergencia

No naden!! Se van a cansar especialmente si las corrientes van en contra de usted.

Tenga suficientes linternas a la mano. Una linterna para cada persona.

Cuando pase el huracán si hay inducciones ve para el techo de las casa. Utilice linternas por la noche y si está a mano ollas y calderos durante el día.

Lona y cuerda. Laona puedes se utilizada para para hacer una reparación temporal si paredes o el techo se derrumban.

No enciendes ningunos electrónicos si hay inundaciones!

No tomen agua que no haya sido almacenada previamente! Suponga que todo el agua tiene contaminaciones bacterianas (esto también significa el agua del grifo, si no tienes otra opción hervir primero el agua del grifo)

No recojan árboles, alambres, escombros, nada.

No utilice carbón o generadores en interiores!

sacos de arena se pueden utilizar para ayudar a prevenir inundaciones.

Hurricane Irma is now Category 5

Harvey was Category 4 when it hit.

Please pray for Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, and Florida, and anyone else in the path of the storm.

I am especially worried about Haiti. My family sponsors a 15-yr-old girl there through Compassion International.

Haiti/DR and the other islands in the path of the storm don’t have the infrastructure for both withstanding the hurricane and recovering afterward that Florida does. Please remember Puerto Rico, Haiti, DR, and Cuba when donating to relief efforts.

If you live in the affected area and you can evacuate, do it now. Please.

This is going to be an absolutely devastating hurricane season.

when sending out prayers/good vibes/help for hurricane irma, PLEASE don’t forget about the islands. especially haiti, dominican republic, turks and cacos, the bahamas, and so many more. they don’t have millions of people backing them up simply because they aren’t the usa. please donate and send care packages because they won’t be able to bounce back or get immediate help after a devastating category 5, the largest category a hurricane can be, like the usa can.

After hurricane Maria, the island of Dominica (different place from the Dominican Republic) was left devastated and damaged. The country is in a great need of help.

What do you think it says?

florida has thousands of guards and volunteers coming to help for hurricane irma, and it hasn’t hit us yet. where is the help coming for barbuda, who the prime minister said that literally 90% of the island has been destroyed? (after they literally could NOT get a hold of him for 12+ hours after the storm hit), where is the help coming for puerto rico, who reports have said the entire island’s electricity might not even be operational for months to come? where’s the help for haiti and the dominican republic, who’s already struggling from earthquakes that happened over 10 years ago and hurricane matthew and a cholera epidemic? the places that need help the most are being ignored, simply because it isn’t the 50 states of the usa. please send donations, not the red cross (haiti has yet to see donations made from their 2007 earthquake), send care packages if you can’t send money. spread and reblog the word of other donations and people who help if you don’t have the finances or resources to help. these countries don’t have the means to bounce back after a category 5 hurricane has destroyed the entire island, please help them.

Hurricane Irma

Well, I’m currently in Puerto Rico, in the middle of Hurricane Irma. And let me tell you…It’s bad. It’s not just bad, it’s monstrous. Irma hasn’t even reached her full potential, and already we are experiencing huge casualties. Us puertoricans are gonna be left with no power for an estimate of 2-6 months. Wich is horrible, since technology is what helps us stay in contact. Culebra and Viequez are currently fighting it out with Irma, St. Martin was left destroyed, and we don’t have any contact with the Barbuda island. Not to mention, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Florida etc., Are gonna be hit with this soon. We just hope to survive this storm with as little casualties and deaths as possible.


So keep us all in your prayers please. Not just Puerto Rico, but everyone affected and soon to be affected by Irma.
