Hurricane season is here!
Florida residents, here’s your chance to prepare. The Tax-Free Weekend for purchasing hurricane supplies started yesterday and runs until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 4.
Here’s what you need to prepare for a hurricane (note: not all these items are tax free):
Drinking water: 1 gallon per person per day. Stock at least a three-day supply.
Batteries-Put fresh batteries in and stock 2 extra sets of batteries per device.
Car cell phone charger-If you don’t have one already, get it now.
Flashlights-1 per person, with 2 to spare.
Non-electric can opener
First Aid kit
Three day supply of non-perishable foods
Disposable plates, knives, forks, spoons
Grill supplies: Propane for gas grills, charcoal/lighter fluid for charcoal grills. (If your power’s out, you’ll want to barbecue your meat before it goes bad!)
Got your hurricane kit ready? No excuses!
