at what wind speed would you consider boarding up the windows and doors?




I would do it at any level of hurricane....not for a tropical storm unless it was rapidly strengthening or possibly very close to hurricane force. Distance from the eyewall is also a factor. 75 mph is plenty to lift objects and throw them and you need that protection to keep from breaking windows.




This is going to be my first hurricane (besides Mathew). With the projected path as it is what will the impact be in our area? We're neighbors I live in Crystal Springs in a mobile home that needs a new roof (like last year). It's me and my 6 year old son, my best friend, her hubby and their three kids 2, 8 and 14. I need to decide if it's best to find a hotel/motel from Friday night to Monday or ride it out here at the house. Thoughts?




You cannot stay in a mobile home during a hurricane. You need to find shelter at either a well-built concrete block home or a designated shelter site. You're on the Western side of the state, so less of an impact given the current models and tracking, but do NOT take any chances, especially with kids.
