As a storm approaches, the last place anyone wants to be is on line at the supermarket, fighting for whatever supplies are left on the shelves. Although many people wait until a storm watch or warning to purchase their food, water, and other materials, having these items on hand in advance of a storm can be a significant advantage.

 

According to the National Hurricane Center, some items that are important to keep in your home during hurricane season include at least 1 gallon of water per person, non-perishable packaged or canned food / juices, Battery operated and NOAA weather radio, as well as a water proof container for important documents.
