Stay informed about hurricanes and maintain a level of preparedness. Clear your yard of loose debris, trim back limbs of trees and bring in furniture, potted plants, and other outdoor items that can turn into projectiles during strong wind events.
Be prepared the next two months are typically the busiest time in the hurricane season around the Caribbean and Florida. Make sure your flashlights are operational, your generator is working, have a battery operated radio and or TV, you have plenty of drinking water stored and a first aide kit (with bandages, peroxide, alcohol wipes, antibiotic ointment, gauze, tape, and pain killers is a good idea), non perishable food (such as peanut butter, granola bars, canned beans, Spaghtti-O's, beef jerky, crackers or bread are good ideas- especially if you have small children) Make sure you have some emergency cash on hand and pet food for your pets. If you have an interior closet or bathroom that you can use as a safe room, make sure it is cleaned out and accessible in case of an emergency. Above and beyond anything stay safe! Stay away from downed power lines, do not venture out into the storm.
