When a disaster strikes, it is usually without warning. Hurricane Harvey seemed to materialize out of nowhere. Being a category 1 hurricane just days before it struck the coast of Texas, many didn’t have much time to prepare.
The recovery from Hurricane Harvey is just getting underway and it may be some time before we know the amount of damage and loss it caused both in life and things. It’s hard to believe that Sunday, August 23rd marked the 12-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which left over 2,000 humans dead and an estimated 600,000 pets deceased or homeless!
Nearly 44% of the people who decided to ride out the storm did so because they couldn’t take their pets or didn’t want to leave them behind. Check out the list of essentials you’ll need if, for whatever reason, you need to leave in a hurry.
