Your Guide to Hurricane Preparedness

By Mark Young, SouthFloridaReporter.com Managing Editor, Aug 27, 2015 – As Tropical Storm Erika takes aim at South Florida, let’s all be reminded that this past week we marked the 23rd anniversary of Hurricane Andrew and the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The purpose of this article is to get you prepared – just in case. It’s almost 10 years since a hurricane hit South Florida and we need to be vigilant.

Rather than list everything you need to do, most of us know the drill. Don’t wait to fill up your car with gas or get cash from the bank.  There are, also, many other supplies you’ll need from the grocery story to the home improvement stores. Buy them now.

Our team of SouthFloridaReporter.com meteorologists and writers will be monitoring TS Erika closely for you.
