Sorry when it comes to Hurricanes no one is prepared for one. The best way is to get away from the areas that will be hit if u can.

Although I live in a pretty "hurricane free" zone - I do believe in being prepared. In addition to a stocked pantry, 30 gallons of water, cash, etc - after watching the devastation of Katrina, we purchased a 'crank' radio w/ a light and siren. They are relatively inexpensive and can go for many hours on just 1 minute of cranking. It also has the battery back-up, but at some point, the batteries will wear down.
