Hurricanes - Knowledgebase Question

We have a hurricane fixing to make a line drive at us. I am a huge gardener. I have taken everything in that I can. I have even dug stuff up in my yard. We had a hurricane not even a year ago that kill so much. And now I find my self on this panic mode once more.
What I am so worried about is a lot of different mamos trees that I have. I almost started to dig them up but I knew I would loose them as hot as it gets here. What care can I give them after this. I know trimming any broken or twisted limbs. These trees are very young some just a year.
If you pray. Please pray for me and my family. Cause I do not know what tomorrow will have in store for us.
Thank You,
Amanda Brock

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

I hope the hurricane missed you but if it did not trimming broken branches is the first step. If the area stays too saturated the trees may also suffer from waterlogged roots. There is little to do for this unless you can trench through the are to drain away excess water.

And although it is after the storm I did pray for you and your family today.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
