Preparation for the storm is key in managing hurricanes. Your home may not sustain any damage, but you could lose power for an undeterminable amount of time. It's a good idea to start stocking up on supplies now. This is also a cost saving measure so you're not out at the last minute, panic shopping before a storm.
If you're without power, you'll need batteries to power flashlights. You may want to have a propane or charcoal grill for cooking or a camping stove. You'll want to have a sturdy cooler for your refrigerated items. You also want to have a very healthy supply of drinking water on hand. It's always a good idea to fill up a bathtub with water so you have enough water for flushing toilets. Also, make sure you have canned goods - food that will keep if not refrigerated because there's a chance you may not have access to ice.
Tax free shopping days for hurricane supplies in Florida is slated for May 28th through June 6th. The state of Florida provides storm information and a list of items you need to complete your hurricane kit on their website. You can find the hurricane supply list here.
Always remember to heed the warnings of local emergency officials. If you're told to evacuate, be sure to do so in a timely manner to avoid crowded highways and booked hotel rooms.
