Time to tackle that hurricane kit you've been meaning to put together. Now... what to put in your supply box? Food and water—check! Maybe a flashlight, a first-aid kit and some candles, and you're good to go, right?
Building a proper hurricane kit and preparing your home takes careful planning and foresight. Especially if you're storing resources for multiple family members, you'll need supplies that are designed for worst-case scenarios, like long waits for goods due to closed ports, power outages and even temporary relocation to a shelter or a friend's home.
