Educating people about the causes, effects, and preventive measures of hurricanes would help them focus on their safety first. This means that the knowledge about how to survive through a hurricane will help save the lives of many people. The government also should developregulations that help people control the effects of hurricanes. For instance, developing laws that limit people from living in floods or natural disaster prone areas will ensure their safety. Encouraging people to build protective houses may not be the most favorable preventive measure since it is expensive. Informing people about the possibility of a hurricane will give them time to evacuate (Nationalgeographic.com n.p). This will also give them time to collect emergency supplies to avoid leaving their houses during the hurricane. If the storm comes beforeevacuating, people should ensure that they are up to date with the news, which will guide them on the way forward. For instance, evacuation routes are offered on media for safe movement.
