MAKE A PLAN
According to the National Hurricane Center, the most active time for hurricanes and tropical storms in August and September, with storm season ending November 30. Be sure to complete your disaster plan before the chaos of an approaching storm so you aren’t caught off guard and unprepared. 

BUILD A KIT 
Nature is unpredictable and having a disaster supply kit on hand is vital. Basic supplies should include water, non-perishable food, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, medications and prescriptions, chargers, flashlights, a first aid kit, and extra batteries.
