We’re only a month into the Atlantic hurricane season, which lasts through November, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting it will be an active one. This week, Tropical Storm Elsa became the first major storm of the season to hit Florida’s mainland, blowing in heavy winds and rain.

Experts say it’s vital to be prepared for hurricanes, which can be “dangerous and destructive,” as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) puts it. Here are 10 tips for safety preparation.

Please note that here in Hawai‘i, we need to stock water and supplies for at least 14 days. Most government websites recommend 3 days, and that is a reasonable supply if you live on the continental United States. Hawai‘i remains dependent on container ships that take a minimum of 7 days to get to Hawai‘i from Oakland or Los Angeles.
