How to Prepare for a Hurricane?

To be prepared for a hurricane, have plenty of batteries, flashlights, a weather radio, non-perishable foods (and a can-opener), and as many jugs of drinking water as you can. Be sure you have enough supplies for three or more days, in case flooding and downed trees keep you from getting out or others getting in. Before the storm, board up your windows and remove or secure anything in your yard that may become a projectile in high winds.
