Top Essential Items You Need in Your Hurricane Kit
Hurricane Season is less than a week away and there's already been a named storm in the Atlantic. It's time to get your hurricane preparedness kit stocked up and ready to be used if you need it.
The American Red Cross has published a guide of key items you should have in your hurricane kit. I recommend getting plastic totes to store the items in so they can be stored easily and moved to a vehicle if you need to evacuate.
