As the storm approaches, here is some advice from EarlyBird Power on hurricane preparations:
Most importantly, make sure to have plenty of bottled water, food, working flashlights, a battery operated radio, and extra batteries in your home. If you plan to use a generator, operate it outdoors and follow all other precautions provided by the generator’s manufacturer. Save your cell phone’s power or have a plan to charge it in case of an outage. Make sure you have enough necessary medicine. Have plans for a backup source of power if you rely on oxygen or electricity for medications or medical reasons.
