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.

Antibactrial hand soap.
bar of soap,wash cloth,towel for each person, EXTRA pair of shoes in the car trunk with first aid kit,We each have a months supply of our medicines set aside to grab if needed for the car, a 99 cent store camera in each car.pencil and paper to write notes for family ,tacks & tape stamps, And change /small amount of cash, Blankets ,Jackets ,change of clothes, ( I have PJ's in my kit) Food bars, Peanut Butter/crackers, Drinks to GO powder, instant tea,coffee,and oatmeal.

PET FOOD,water dish,extra leash & carrier. Some family snapshots in a ziplock bag. Each car has a kit and the garage has a well stocked pantry.I'm sure I have forgotten some things, but this is a start.

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.
