With over eight million examples on the internet of how to prepare for a tropical cyclone, the average person, perhaps new to such weather phenomenon or has just bought a boat, simply does not have the time to sit online to determine what they need.

The Survivor’s Guide to Monster Storms draws on existing best practice and lessons learnt in the British Virgin Islands from catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane Irma in 2017. The book reminds individuals to be prepared as much as possible in advance, acts as a signpost on actions to be taken, and highlights the challenges you can expect to experience after the storm passes. The practical advice could be applied to just about any disaster situation (the useful checklists have come in handy during Covid-19 lockdowns!) and the light-hearted anecdotes scattered through the pages does make for a good read wherever you are in the world.

This practical guide focuses on the importance of gathering supplies ahead of an expected impact to pooling resources after the fact, and the value of a strong network of friends, family and neighbours. It includes sections on the essentials of food, water and shelter; preparing your children; your animals; your office; your boat; your home; the environment; foreign nationals and volunteers. This book should be in everybody’s household!
