While many people were panicking and spending all their available cash on supplies, we were comforted knowing that we didn’t need to join the rush and that we were well prepared. I moved from tornado alley and today I live in a hurricane zone which took a major hit in 2004.
For those in hurricane areas: December first, remove your food that will expire in the next six months. With hurricane memories still fresh, I have gone through our supplies this past weekend to take a little inventory. Pack only what is essential for surviving the storm and its aftermath.Don't forget to hurricane-proof your digital information.
At least one gallon of water per day per person for 3-5 days, two quarts a day for drinking and two quarts for food preparation and sanitation.
Comfort food: You might as well buy the Twinkies (or Pop-Tarts, doughnuts, Nutter Butters or Little Debbies). You'll face a refrigerator full of rotten food if you evacuate, the power goes out and you can't return home for days or weeks.
The premium hurricane kit provides bug-out supplies for four while the basic and deluxe are 2-person ready-made kits. Thawed foods that do not contain ice crystals but have been kept at 40 degrees or below for no more than one to two days may be cooked, then refrozen or canned.

In general, don't buy food that your family won't eat regularly - it'll still be in the cupboard for hurricane season 2010. Tropical Storm Erika may not be a devastating event, but it's never too early to think about what hurricane supplies you should have on hand. Supplies: Garbage bags and ties, paper towels, wipes, fuel (charcoal, lighter fluid, matches) or a full propane tank for the grill, hand sanitizer. Here are some common safety questions about how to handle food and water before and after a storm. Do not eat any food in nonwaterproof containers that have touched floodwater because it carries bacteria.
Compiled with information from Times files, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration and Clemson University Cooperative Extension. Because of couponing and my food storage there was nothing that we needed, save for some fresh fruit and vegetables.
I actually just moved to NJ (southern but inland) this past Sunday from FL so I never expected to deal with a hurricane up here. Caruso said RF shields and Faraday begins buying a single of these generators and installed hurricane checklist food that at their properties. I live in Nebraska so no hurricanes, but we do have our share of tornado’s and snow storms.
If you live in a hurricane prone area, you are entering peak hurricane season and need to take action.

You may already have foods appropriate for an emergency such as bread, crackers and peanut butter.
Hurricane preparedness supplies include a basic first aid kit, hygiene kit, 2-man tent, food and water purification tablets and more. For instance, diabetics and people allergic to wheat will need special considerations since so many shelf-stable foods are carb- and grain-laden. OK, just to add a little levity to the hurricane situation, I thought it would be prudent to post a few of our supplies.
For canned foods, discard paper labels and note the contents with a marker directly on the can. If it appears the power will be off more than six hours, transfer refrigerated perishable foods to a cooler filled with ice or frozen gel packs. My family went through hurricane charley passing right over our house in Fl in 2004 we had wind gusts of 180mph so we say no storm is a joke.
But remember, the water isn’t just for drinking but for food prep, teeth brushing, hand washing and bathing. All the necessary hurricane bug-out supplies are gathered into one kit specifically designed to cover you in a natural disaster.
