Do you have everything on your list?
Be prepared and take steps to protect yourself and your family. If you live in a high risk area, start preparing now. The Central Pacific hurricane season starts June 1st and runs through November 30th. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that this hurricane season will experience 2 – 6 tropical cyclones, but it only takes 1 storm to majorly impact Hawaii.
Part of your hurricane preparation plan should include making sure you have enough medication to last a few weeks. Check with your pharmacist even if you’re not due for a refill; medically necessary exceptions may be made during an emergency. For more information on personal health preparedness visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.
