Por: PDI Now!
• Clothing – seasonal / rain gear/ sturdy shoes.
• First Aid Kit / Medicines / Prescription Drugs.
• Special Items – for babies and the elderly.
• Toiletries / Hygiene items / Moisture wipes.
• Dive mask and snorkel – No, no joke! It’s the only way to see and breath in the torrential downpours of a tropical storm.
• Flashlight / Batteries – Actually check them often, but not too often as then they will be dead when you need them.
• Radio – Battery operated and NOAA weather radio. Also available for a reasonable price is a hand crank radio. These compact self-powered radios run 20 minutes on a few brisk cranks.
• Cash, Keys, Toys, Books, and Games to keep the kids calm and amused.
• Vehicle fuel tanks filled. Seriously, this can be a problem. Following large storms the roads may be closed for days, prohibiting fuel delivery. Fortunately, it also will inhibit your ability to USE the gas in your car. Also, station tanks can flood, providing substandard fuel for weeks.
