Every home should have a disaster supply kit for hurricanes, flash floods, tsunamis, and power outages.

Store at least a week's supply of food and water; a first aid kit with medicines especially any prescription drugs; special items for babies, the elderly and pets; flashlights; a battery powered radio with extra batteries; and a NOAA Weather Radio.

Keep some cash on hand. Banks and ATMs may not be open or available for extended periods. Important documents should be placed in a waterproof container. Take time now! Be prepared!
