Make sure you have plenty of non-perishable food, water, bread, batteries, flashlights, candles, and paper products, etc. Put up hurricane shutters if needed. Bring in things from outside that could fly around and cause damage. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and cash.
Same as what Tomi says. Even though I live 3 to 4 hours from the coast it is best to prepare especially if a hurricane hits long island. We were under the threat of Hurricane Wanda. So we stocked up on water and other supplies. We did get the tail end with a bunch of rain but didn't really need what we got. However a week later we had three days of steady rain. It was not heavy just a steady and lite rain. After a day of clear sunny weather we were suddenly hit with Tropical Storm Lee. With the waters from Wanda, the steady rain and Lee, there was devastating flooding in my area. So those supplies did come in handy
Now if I lived on or near the coast, the minute I hear about a tropical storm I would begin making basic preparations. When I find out that the storm is heading towards my part of the state I would load up my car and drive as far inland as I can. I will not wait until a mandatory evacuation

When you start dating someone... Does it come slowly and steadily, like a warm summer wind? Or does it come with fierce force and you suddenly find yourself in the middle of strong storm? How do you think it should be?

People are evacuating now in coastal areas of North Carolina and South Carolina and surrounding states. Hoping people affected might post something here as Hurricane Florence approaches.
