Hurricane season is a great time for lists. We’ve put one together from trusted sources, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross, to help you and your family weather the storm.

  1. Create an emergency plan: Develop a plan that includes evacuation routes, meeting places, and emergency contacts.
  2. Build an emergency kit: Stock up on essential items such as nonperishable food, water, first-aid supplies, flashlights, batteries, and a battery-powered radio.
  3. Secure important documents: Keep important documents like insurance policies, identification, and medical records in a waterproof and portable container.
  4. Prepare your home: Install hurricane shutters, trim trees, secure outdoor furniture, and ensure your roof is in good condition.
  5. Know your evacuation zone: Familiarize yourself with your local evacuation zones and routes.
  6. Have a communication plan: Establish a plan for communicating with family members during and after the hurricane.
  7. Fill up your gas tank: Keep your vehicle's gas tank full in case you need to evacuate quickly.
  8. Get cash: Withdraw some cash in case ATMs and credit card machines are not working due to power outages.
  9. Charge electronic devices: Make sure your phones, laptops, and other electronic devices are fully charged before the hurricane hits.
  10. Stay informed: Monitor local news and weather reports for updates on the hurricane's path and any evacuation orders. The Florida Public Radio Emergency Network is another great source of information. There is even a mobile app.
