Perhaps the most important thing to do is gather items you might need if you become trapped or stranded. Even in the worst case, if your house is compromised or you are unable to leave it, you and your family will be okay so long as you have taken the time to put together the necessities.
The National Hurricane Center has released a suggested list of supplies. Among these are first aid kits, toys, books and games, and of course food and water. Make sure that you have what you need to entertain and nurture yourself until it’s safe outside once again.
