The National Weather Service (NWS) suggests the following steps to take before the storm:
1. Prepare a hurricane emergency kit with water, food, flashlights, batteries, a first aid kit, and more.
2. Create and review your family emergency plan – where you will go in the event of an emergency, how you will stay in contact with each other, and more.
3. Stay up to date on the weather and understand the meanings of the National Weather Service’s watches and warnings.
