(HealthDay News) -- An important part of hurricane readiness is collecting supplies that will help keep your family safe, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Before a hurricane, the CDC suggests that you:
Prepare an emergency water supply.
Prepare emergency food and medicine supplies.
Gather a flashlight and first aid kit.
Gather personal care products, such as toothpaste and a sanitizer.
The agency says it is also essential to make a hurricane plan. This includes finding out where the nearest shelter is, and writing down emergency phone numbers.
