Main themes: As the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states prepare for Hurricane Florence, we discuss how to prep your vehicle to deal with a natural disaster. We cover things to think about before, during, and after a storm, including how to best ready your car for evacuation traffic, the risks of high water, how to use your car’s telematics systems, and how to watch for flood-damaged cars on the used-car market long after the storm has passed.
