Hurricane Supplies

The East Coast is expecting a major storm this weekend—the wrath of Hurricane Irene. The National Hurricane Center suggests having enough supplies for anywhere from 3 to 7 days on hand in order to be adequately prepared. Below is a list of what they suggest you gather together before the storm hits.

  1. Bottled water
  2. Non-perishable food, including snacks, and paper or plastic plates and utensils
  3. Flashlights and extra batteries
  4. First Aid kit including prescriptions or other medicines
  5. Extra blankets, pillows and appropriate clothing
  6. Battery-powered radio
  7. Extra toiletries

Other tips to be prepared include charging your phone, laptop and other electronics ahead of time in the event of a power outage. If you have a car, try to fill up on gas prior to the storm. Finally, remain indoors unless absolutely necessary.
