Now is the time to prune your trees, cutting out weak or diseased branches that might fall and damage your or your neighbor’s property. Inventory your hurricane supplies and replace outdated items, such as food and first aid supplies. Bring a jug of water home each time you go to the supermarket. Send copies of important documents to a friend or relative who lives beyond the threat of hurricanes. Check your hurricane shutters to be sure they are in good condition. By making these preparations now, you can save yourself a lot of headaches and keep your family safe when a storm closes in.
