At some point, you may have to decide if it’s time for your family to leave your home and “bug-out” – to flee for safety and or security. It’s stressful to leave everything behind – ask a hurricane victim what it’s like to leave your home and not know whether you’ll be back, and, if you do come back, whether your house will even be there.
