Storage units can be helpful in times of emergency and natural disaster. With the recent Hurricane Lane passing through the islands, we all had our fair share in experiencing a panic and rush to prepare for the hurricane.
Panic Before the Storm
Oahu saw a rush of traffic and long lines at grocery stores in the week leading up to the expected Hurricane Lane. Gas stations also had long lines as people were stocking up on necessities to prepare for the hurricane. It was a panic, to say the least. This was one of the biggest, most potentially dangerous hurricanes the islands were expecting since Hurricane Iniki came through in 1992. The hurricane had a minimal impact on Oahu compared to the other islands like Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.
Storage Units Preparedness
We emphasize that being prepared and having stockpiles are important things to practice. For example, your storage units could be used to fill with these necessary items in preparation for the storm or hurricane. We strongly suggest this, especially during hurricane season. Prepared storage units would come in handy for when the grocery stores sell out or when disaster strikes and your personal stockpiles run out.
