To be ready for a hurricane, heat, tornado, or severe storms that threaten every year, Farm Bureau Insurance recommends creating a “disaster kit” in order to effectively prepare for poor weather.
Your kit should start with the basics: water, food, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, and extra batteries. Include canned goods such as fruits and vegetables. Remember you will need a can opener.
If you have an outdoor gas grill, check to see how much gas you have. You may be able to use the grill to cook your meals until electricity is restored. Secure the propane tank as best as possible.
