Are You Prepared For Hurricane Season?

hurricane kit

As residents of the Gulf Coast, we know all too well how devestating a hurricane can be. It was just six years ago that Hurricane Ike hit our area and left considerable damage. We are well into hurricane season and if you haven't already, now is the time to make sure you are prepared. Here is a list of things that the CDC says you should have in your Emergency Supply Kit:

  • Water—one gallon per person, per day
  • Food—nonperishable, easy-to-prepare items
  • Flashlight
  • Battery powered or hand crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications (7-day supply), other medical supplies, and medical paperwork (e.g., medication list and pertinent medical information)
  • Multipurpose tool (e.g., Swiss army knife)
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (e.g., proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, and insurance policies)
  • Cell phone with chargers
  • Family and emergency contact information
  • Extra cash
  • Emergency blanket
  • Map(s) of the area
  • Extra set of car keys and house keys
  • Manual can opener
