  3. Emergency Kit: Pack a bag with essential items like water, non-perishable food, medications, flashlights, batteries, first aid kit, and important documents.
  4. Secure Your Home:
    • Board up windows with plywood or storm shutters.
    • Bring in outdoor furniture and other loose items.
    • Ensure gutters and drains are clear to prevent flooding.
    • Reinforce garage doors and windows.
  5. Communicate: Inform family and friends of your plans. Establish a check-in system.
