Hurricane Preparedness in Elizabeth City/Outer Banks
With hurricane season upon us, it is important to be prepared. Even with advanced warnings, hurricanes can be deadly and it pays to have a plan in place. Below are some tips to get your family and home Hurricane Ready.
Create a supply kit. These can be stored in large plastic totes or in a large backpack for grab and go emergencies. Keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights, batteries, an emergency weather radio, list of emergency contact numbers, a map, and any medications that would be needed for your family and pets. For kits that can be taken on the road, include small activity books to have on hand as well.
