During Hurricane season it’s wise to be prepared before a storm hits your area.
You can never be prepared enough when it comes to something as drastic as a hurricane, flood, tornado or any major tropical storm system. But, the point is to do your best to be as prepared as possible in the event that is occurs. If you don’t have these extra measures in place now, you might want to consider some of these and get started.
If you purchase just a few extra of these shopping items on this list each week, you won’t need a mad dash to the store to find out most of these items are already sold out. Start early to prepare.
