Here is your at home tip for today. Summer storms can be violent and hurricanes along the coast can create a disaster, so be prepared. Always have extra bottled water in your home.
In hurricane prone areas you may want to fill the bathtub with water for cooking. Stock up on batteries, flashlights and fluorescent camping lights. Avoid propane lamps and candles as they can be a hazard. Have a charged cell phone and a charger for the phone that works in the car in the event of a power failure. It is always a good idea to have a few tools handy and some tarps and of course duct tape. Have a first aid kit stock and be ready to go.
There are many things to consider but these are just a few. Might even bring lawn furniture, bikes toys, grills and garbage cans to a sheltered area to avoid them from becoming airborne.
