How to Prepare for a Hurricane
You can still order supplies and have them shipped to you the next day.
Make sure you have a weather radio powered by a hand crank or a solar panel. We found one here that comes with a couple of lights, radio, and an outlet to keep your mobile phones and other devices charged. You might want to invest in a generator to keep your refrigerator, TV, and other necessities alive when you lose power. We found a good generator that is less expensive and should get you through a storm. You may need hurricane window board-up clips for plywood, which can save time.
But you can also shop around for the best generator, depending on how much power you need.
