If you are visiting family in the US during hurricane and typhoon season, and you are planning a visit to storm-prone regions, you should take some precautions. First of all, make sure you have adequate visitor health insurance to help should you be affected by storms. Visitor health insurance is vital if you are traveling to high-risk areas in the United States.
Monitor the warnings from the US government and if there is a tropical storm or hurricane alert, change your travel plans. Even areas away from the coast can be affected by high winds, floods and dangerous conditions.
Make sure your family has an emergency supply kit if they live in an at-risk area. Have bottled water, flashlights and non-perishable food packed safely.
Make copies of your passport and travel documents and store them away from your main luggage. Keep important documents in waterproof covers in case of damage from storms and heavy rain. While serious tropical storms and hurricanes are rare in the US, it is better to be safe than sorry.
