Riding the Storm Out
There are many things you can do to prepare for a "storm event". One of these very important items is a Home Emergency Kit/Car Emergency Kit. In the kit is a collection of basic household/automobile items that you will need in an emergency. Try to assemble your kit as soon as possible so that it will be ready in case of an emergency and don't forget to rotate new items in so when you need it there will not be expired or out-of-date items.
When there is a "storm event" it takes at least 72 hours for emergency and relief workers to be on scene. Services like electricity and phone might be cut off for over a week. Kits should be prepared with this information in mind.
Be Prepared!! Use online resources to see what should be in your emergency kit!
