Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 10.41.09 AMDid you know that, according to NOAA, we experience an average of 12 tropical storms each year, 6 of which become hurricanes that form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico? Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30, and now’s the time to get prepared.

In your Basic Disaster Supply Kit, store at least one case of twelve, one-liter water bottles for a family of four, per day. Remember, since hydration is critical for survival, you may consider stocking more bottled water to handle either unexpected emergencies or higher activity levels (e.g., if you or a family member has to remove fallen vegetative debris during or after a storm), especially for those living in warmer climates such as Florida.

Keep enough water on hand for at least three days. Make sure you select the highest quality water in the sturdiest and best quality container you can buy for long-term storage. Always store bottled water in a dark, cool place. For Florida-centric storm tracking maps and more preparedness information, visit www.myfloridahurricane.info.
