Hurricane Preparation

June 1st is the official start of hurricane season in the Lowcountry.  Though we all hope that there are no serious storms, it is best to be prepared!  Below is a list of items that you might want to keep on hand, just in case!


  • Battery-powered radio
  • Flashlight for each member of the family
  • Battery-operated lantern and extra fresh batteries
  • First-aid kit
  • Disposable plates and utensils
  • Non-electric can opener
  • Blankets
  • Bottled water and an adequate supply of non-perishable food
  • Corded telephone or cell phone (cordless phones won't work if the power is out)
  • List of emergency phone numbers
