It’s hurricane season, which means hurricanes and tropical storms are likely to occur from now through November and typically peaks in September. An above normal season of hurricanes is expected and as of mid July, according to weather experts,we could see an additional 11 named storms before end of season. In true Scouting form, we are always ready and prepared for life. In the case of hurricane preparedness, reliable emergency lighting is critical, so let's get ready! 

Check your emergency light sources to make sure they are functional and can hold up to the force of powerful storms. Hurricanes frequently create power outages and black-outs, resulting in loss of power. It is essential to have emergency sources of light and mobile charging capabilities that are solar powered or use batteries. Hurricanes also cause flash floods and storm surges creating extremely soggy conditions. You will need to ensure your light and mobile charging sources are reliable even when wet.

Flashlights are typically used as emergency sources of light. Solar lanterns are excellent alternatives during hurricane events. They do not require batteries, are bright, waterproof and lightweight. They can also be easily hung or attached for bright spatial lighting. They have been tested in the most extreme conditions including Hurricane Maria. In addition to their incredible reliability and ability to hold a charge for months, they are better for the planet. 

COVID-19 x Hurricanes

The 2020 Hurricane Season will require additional preventative measures due to COVID-19. The CDC recommends you should continue to use preventive actions like washing your hands and wearing a face covering to help keep everyone safe.
