Preparing for Hurricane Issac

by Wayne Turner

It's on every mind...Hurricane Issac 2012. We may not get a direct hit here in St.Tammany Parish but it seems are dear friends in Florida may face the blunt on the storm.  Mandeville, Covington an Slidell will see high water from the surge of Lake Pontchartrain.  Know one really knows where Hurricane Issac will go but one thing is for certain, life as we know it will not be the same for a few days. 

Electricity will go out in many locations.  Gas stations, grocery stores, large suppliers such as Lowes and Home Debot loose electricity so be prepared.  As a native Tennesseean I have experienced the impact several tornados and now after many years in Louisiana learn the wrath of Hurricanes.  So Lets be prepared. 

Hurricane Issac Preparation List: 

  1. Water - 1 gallon per person per day.
  2. Get a Weather radio that winds to charge.   
  3. Batteries...D for big flashlights
  4. Generator
  5. Work Gloves
  6. Coolers
  7. Dry Ice
  8. Propane for gas grill - You can cook anything on a gas grill
  9. Ice
  10. Fill Up Your Vehicles Now
  11. First aid kit - Hope you never have to use it.
  12. Fill Bathtubs - If your going to ride it out fill up bath tubs. You'll need it to flush commodes
  13. Two way radios - $30 at Academy Sports
  14. Fill your medical prescriptions
  15. Vehicle cell phone charger
  16. Toiletries
  17. 5 days of food & beverage: Water,Wine - dry, canned, beans and tuna have good protein
  18. Hand held mechanical can opener
  19. Cash - ATM's run on electricity  
  20. Matches, Candles, Fire extinguisher

Keep, Safe when in doubt get out.

Houses are money in your pocket.  I have banks loaning 90% LTV money at 4.75% on a 30 year fixed mortgage and 4.15% on a 15 year fixed.  This is what we do.  Write the contract and negotiate with the seller to allow you the buyer to show the home to prospective tenants with a 24 notice.  This gets you a signed committed lease before you even close on the home.  Our investors are closing houses and having tenants move in the homes that afternoon.  To get complete access to the newest properties for sale in St. Tammany Parish go to
