Create an emergency plan for the household and review it with everyone in the home.
Have an emergency contact with an out-of-state friend or family member so they can check on your location.
Follow instructions from authorities in regards to evacuations and other safety measures by checking through radio, television or other media outlets that provide emergency information.
Plan an evacuation route before the hurricane.
Important documents, including ID cards and other vital information, should be placed in a secure and waterproof container.
