Life safety comes first. Make sure you have water and food to last a minimum of 3 days. The storm may not last that long but a direct impact could have you stuck at home for a couple of days so be prepared. Make sure patio furniture and yard items are put away or tied down. High wind can turn typical yard items into flying missiles that can be very dangerous. Have a plan in the event the weather turns really bad. Hallways and interior bathrooms are the safest places to take refuge if you find yourself in the path of the very worst of the storm.

If you live close to the coast. Board up your windows and doors with glass in them. Cut away any loose tree debris such as hanging limbs or dead trees. depending on how close to the water you happen to be know how the anticipated tidal surge can impact you. Have some sand bags available in the event of rising water. Fill your gas tank , you may need to evacuate. Have candles and non perishable food available. Plenty of water again is a must.
