With hurricane season just two days away, it's time to start preparing for potential inclement weather - if you haven't already done so.
The American Red Cross has shared steps you can take now to be prepared in case of severe weather or an emergency.
- Start building an emergency kit - this should include a gallon of water, non-perishables flashlights, batteries and a safety kit.
- Create and evacuation plan - then, practice it so you're ready.
- Research hurricane response plans in your area - make sure you know what shelter you would go to (and have a back-up plan or two).
