Hundreds of people in Moore, OK are now facing the tough days that immediately follow a natural disaster.
The disaster is a stark reminder for people in Bayou City to get ready and be prepared for hurricane season. Dr. Nick Solomos with Kelsey-Seybold is a family physician who helps families get prepared for emergencies like tornadoes or hurricanes.
Dr. Solomos says it is much easier to have an evacuation plan and know where the nearest shelter is before the disaster, "If you didn't know where to go for shelter during a disaster beforehand, trying to find out where those shelters are without television without radio is difficult."
But, it is also important to make sure you have survival essentials like food and water. Dr. Solomus says many people forget to plan ahead when it comes to their medication, "You want to make sure you have a seven-day supply of medications. People tend to forget those items in a disaster situation and then lo and behold they are on their last pill."
