    I don’t live in a hurricane prone area

    But my parents live a block south of Boca Raton and just a couple of blocks inland from the beach (about in the middle of the strip of land between the intercoastal waterway on the west and the beach on the east). I'd say should get the guest room ready just in case, but my sister lives closer. They'd probably go there.

    They have ridden out a hurricane at our house once before but not on purpose. It was a planned visit and the hurricane happened to hit at that time (evacuation order hit just as they were already leaving anyway). We sat in our house watching webcams in the region of their house going out one by one. Luckily the damage was trivial.

    No place is perfect. I live in Illinois and I've had to deal with tornadoes and flooding. They DON'T have to deal with winter and get the beach. If I could get a job somewhere nice and warm (and near the beach) I'd take the risk.

    We don't need to worry..The "Bama" will just wish it away, or if it hits just lie and say it never happened...

    August through September are the months you should focus on.

    My preparation began twenty years ago by purchasing and moving into a hole in the side of a very old mountain range in middle Tennessee. The hole is even very close to tornado proof.
