With only six weeks until the start of the 2023 Hurricane season, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is encouraging residents to take precautions.

FDEM tells residents to keep a fully stocked supply kit with at least seven days' worth of supplies.

Some of the supplies include nonperishable food, batteries, and activities.

FDEM says you should have cash on you because banks and ATMs may not be available after the storm. They also say to have a gallon of water every day at the ready, as well as keep your car fully stocked with gasoline.

Fox4 also wants to encourage residents to pay attention and know their hurricane evacuation plans.
