As we prepare for hurricane Ida the most important things we need to have are listed below;
Non-perishable food (enough to last at least 3 days)
Water (enough to last at least 3 days)
First-aid kit (include any prescription medication you may need)
Personal hygiene items and sanitation items
Flashlights (have extra batteries on hand)
Battery operated radio (again, have extra batteries)
Waterproof container with cash and important documents
Lighter or matches
Books, magazines, games for recreation
Special needs items: pet supplies and baby supplies if applicable
Cooler and ice packs
A plan for evacuation and for if family members are separated
Most importantly check on your neighbors and elderly to see if they need anything. Stay tuned to your local news media or radio stations if possible to stay informed on weather conditions. Remove any debris or items in your yards that can be harmful in bad weather conditions. Lastly Do Not Attempt To Leave Once Weather Conditions Worsen.
My prayers are with you and your families, stay prayerful, stay safe and be careful.
