 Four things you can
do to weather the storm

 1. CREATE A PLAN:

Designate specific meeting locations, emergency contacts,
and procedures and make sure everyone in your household is aware of those plans.


2. MAKE A KIT:

Organize a supply kit that includes essentials like food,
clothing, water, a flashlight, and a radio. Be sure to include items specific
to your family like medications and copies of important documents. Keep your
kit updated and located somewhere where you can easily access it.


3. PROTECT YOUR HOME:

Consider which parts of your home are most susceptible to storm
damage. Secure any items that cannot sustain high winds and reinforce fragile
components like windows.  


4. STAY INFORMED:

Be aware of current storm systems. Listen closely to local
officials and weather services for updated news and instructions on evacuation
efforts.

as they weather Hurricane Earl!
