Once a hurricane makes landfall, the time to prepare has passed. Even the days before the hurricane strikes can be too late, since grocery stores are emptied of all the essentials by those who are fortunate enough to be there first, before the crowds arrive.
The time to prepare for hurricanes – and any disaster – is now. Make sure you have emergency kits you can grab on your way out the door, food and water to take as you evacuate or to keep you going should you be unable to leave your home and be forced ride out the storm, and other gear to provide protection from the elements and all it brings. By preparing in advance, you ensure you and your family will always have the resources you need to weather the storm and enjoy a safer, more comfortable tomorrow.
