Do you have a basic disaster kit available in case of a hurricane

Hurricane season doesn't officially end until November 30th.  Be sure you have a basic Disaster Kit available in case of a hurricane.  Your kit should include the following…

• Water: one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
• Food: at least a three-day supply of non-perishable items
• Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
• Flashlight and extra batteries
• Whistle to signal for help
• Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
• Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for personal sanitation
• Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
• Can opener for food (if your kit contains canned food)
• Local maps
