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.

Battery-operated radio/clock

Non-electric can opener

First Aid kit

Three day supply of non-perishable foods

Disposable plates, knives, forks, spoons

Baby wipes

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!
