It's been 12 years since the last major hurricane hit South Florida, so we'd like to help you find and dust off your hurricane supplies.

This is what you should never forget to do when there is a hurricane

It's best to buy and prep now to avoid long lines and stores running out of stock.

Here's what you need in a disaster supply kit:

Water: one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days.

Food: minimum three days worth of nonperishable food and a manual can opener.

Battery-powered radio.

Flashlight.

Extra batteries.

First-aid kit.

Whistle to signal for help.

Dust mask to help filter contaminated air.

Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and toilet paper for sanitation.

Wrench or pliers.

Local maps.

Prescription medications.

Infant formula and diapers.

Pet food and water for pet.

Cash.

Family Documents.

Changes of clothes.

Evacuation Guidelines:

Make a plan ahead of time.

Be aware of locations of hurricane evacuation shelters.

Keep a full tank of gas if evacuation seems likely.

Take one car per family to reduce traffic and delay.

Leave early enough to avoid being trapped by weather.

Follow recommended evacuation routes as other roads may be blocked.

Be alert for road hazards and do not drive into flooded areas.

Keep an emergency supply kit in the car.

Take a battery-powered radio to hear updates on evacuation instructions.

People without a car should make prior arrangements for evacuation.
