What You Can Do to Protect Your Pet Against Hurricanes

Hurricane Florence is currently a Category 4 storm, set to reach North and South Carolina Thursday morning. More than one million people are facing mandatory evacuation orders, CNN reports, and the storm is expected to cause “massive damage” in the region.

When preparing for a hurricane, many people naturally think to stock up on bread and water, and perhaps put up shutters. But some of the most vulnerable victims of hurricanes are pets.
