Weather the Storm
It’s essential to be prepared a hurricane threatens, including the possibility of evacuation and long-term disruption of essential services. It's easy to go overboard, especially in last-minute panic mode, but a few simple steps taken in advance make emergency preparation affordable even on a tight budget. The American Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency recommend a three-day supply for evacuating to a safe zone (though a two weeks' worth of emergency supplies for sheltering in place).
