Track Hurricanes, LIVE CHAT! The best weather website I've seen and protect your home.

This southern gal is no stranger to hurricanes. Your best defense is early prediction so you can get supplies, fuel and plywood before they are gone OR evacuate! Protect your home as best you can and don't forget to turn the power and water off. After the damage is done, good luck getting a contractor, because they will be extremely busy! Here's a Contractor that does Baton Rouge Roofing. Our Baton Rouge Contractors helped us out on all our home improvement and roofing needs on our Louisiana home repairs. Nothing was left untouched so here's the stucco contractor in Baton Rouge that we used to repair the damage to the stucco siding. This stucco company works with many local Baton Rouge Builders. Some homes were totally destroyed and people were left in search of new homes in the Baton Rouge area. This is Baton Rouge body shops best offering with an excellent reputation as a collision center for paint and auto body repair in case you had car damage from the storm. Here in Arizona we get tests of the emergency broadcast system and it still makes me want to run for cover when I hear it. The weather channel reporters seem like old friends because we been through so many of these storms together. In a recent search for storm tracking I found this website from FOX NEWS

The graphics and maps are really great and it also has a live chat:

If you're caught in the storm and lose power, none of these things will help you so make sure you have batteries and a radio and find a local am radio station for updates and road closures.

Don't depend on just a cell phone because towers go down or get overloaded so your calls won't go through. If this happens, try text messaging, the message will go through at the next available signal or open line.

Florida (brilliantly) has already called a state of emergency so if the storm is really bad, emergency crews will be lined up, waiting.

My Pop hasn't been called yet but he and his crew historically are ones ready to leap into action with heavy equipment to initially clear the roads of debris so emergency vehicles can access the area immediately after hurricanes.

I love you dad and I'm watching too in case you need me. Tell David to keep those foxtrotters safe in Mississippi. Missouri was a long ways away to go get a horse. Thankfully the barn was the only thing that got damaged during the last storm.

Click here for Volunteer Florida Disaster to help out in Florida. Be sure to check your local resources to help out in Mississippi after Katrina and Louisiana after Ike and Gustav as well.

Gustav also brought some tax credits to Louisiana if you had hurricane damage to your home. Be sure to get a good accountant in Baton Rouge to take advantage of everything you qualify for. A professional accountant probably save you some money of your income tax return.

Good luck to you in Florida! I believe in watching closely too, I've seen these storms sit in the gulf, gather strength and come get you or my personal favorite is when the category 1 storms spin off record numbers of tornados and catch the residents off guard.

Reporting from Central Florida, as a veteran of Charlie, Francis and Jeanne, this sis nothing to be majorly concerned over. Proper preparation, adequate supplies, and a good weather radio and batteries along with some fresh water...and all will be well.

Looks like Gustav will be a major issue for the Gulf Coast of the United States with New Orleans being a prime target. We are seeing gas prices increasing in South East Florida as a result of the strom.

Good luck and success

Here we go again. The websites above are excellent for tracking hurricane Ida. I surely hope this one isn't severe.
