• Don't wait until the last minute! Even if there is only a 30% chance, better safe than sorry every time.
• If you take a daily medication, make sure you have enough for at least 10 days after the storm. The roadways may be inaccessible for a while.
• Keep all your important documents in a fire/waterproof safe. If you don't have one, use ziplock bags and store them somewhere secure.
• Always be sure to have a stocked first aid kit and know how to get to it in the dark.
• Stock up on water, nonperishable foods, candles, flashlights, and batteries.
• Try to get your laundry done; nothing like having dirty clothes that you can't clean for a week.
• Fill your car's gas tank and if you have a grill be sure to have extra propane.
• Create and go over a hurricane evacuation plan with your family so everyone is on the same page if/when the times comes.
• Take the proper precautions for you and your family's safety! Whether it's boarding up the windows with hurricane shutters/plywood, or a mandatory evacuation, listen to your local news stations and use your best judgment.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those in Hurricane Matthew's path.
Be safe everyone!
