Are You Ready?

When a hurricane comes knocking on your door, do you know what supplies to put in your emergency kit? Those of you we talked to said yes. Water, batteries, flashlights, a generator and canned goods are all necessities to stock up on before the storm strikes. But some of you we talked to also say you wait until the last minute to stock up, a practice emergency management officials strongly discourage. At minimum, it's recommended you have at least three days worth of nonperishable food and water and a flashlight. Emergency management workers also say establishing an out of state contact is a smart step, in case you need somewhere to stay or someone to inform family and friends of your situation.
