Hurricane & Tropical Storm Tips From Hawaii's Best Movers, M. Dyer & Sons, Ewa, Hawaii

M. Dyer & Sons is the best moving company in Hawaii. Whether you’re moving to Hawaii from the mainland or you need an inter-island moving service, these professional movers can transport your valuables to your destination in the quickest, most efficient way possible. For affordable commercial or residential moving help, M. Dyer & Sons will handle everything from packing and loading to storage and logistics.

With hurricane season in full swing, Hawaiians should prepare for the worst. If you’re not sure how to prepare, the friendly moving experts at M. Dyer & Sons have compiled a helpful list of guidelines to follow if a hurricane or tropical storm watch is issued:

  • Secure your home: Cover up your windows and doors with boards or shutters to protect your family from the elements.
  • Stock up on food and water: Buy non-perishable goods and fill up clean, airtight containers with two weeks' worth of drinking water (14 gallons per person).
  • Refill prescription medications: Make sure you have all your necessary medications for at least the next 10-14 days.
  • Replenish first aid kit: Check to see what you have, then replace any necessary supplies in case of a medical emergency.
  • Keep cash on hand: In case there's a long-term power outage, it's a good idea to put some money aside for emergency spending.
  • Fuel up your vehicles: Service your car and keep the gas tank full, just in case you can't access a gas station.
  • Store outdoor lawn furniture: Secure all patio furniture, garbage cans or any other lightweight items that may blow away or damage your property.
  • Buy extra batteries: Make sure you have enough batteries to fuel your flashlights and radios for at least two weeks.

With recent tropical storms bringing high winds and rip currents to the islands, be sure to follow the weather forecast and exercise caution in case of a storm warning. And as for you swimmers, surfers and boaters: pay attention to ocean safety officials and stay out of the water if it's deemed too dangerous.

Stay safe this hurricane season, and remember: if you're moving anytime in the future, call (808) 456-4200 for the best moving company around, M. Dyer & Sons.
