Life can get pretty hectic during a hurricane, as power outages, dangerous winds and flooding can cause massive destruction. The safety of your loved ones becomes a top priority, and you do everything in your power to make sure they are out of harm’s way. But, when your loved one is in the middle of the hurricane, and you are on the other side of the country, you have to get creative.

He kept receiving a busy signal from the authorities, and couldn’t get through to speak to anyone who could help.
