For a Florida Resident. having a hurricane is nothing new. Probably many of us would not get worried until it is at least a Category 3 or 4, but if you are facing a hurricane, you should be prepared. Have supplies, food and water that does not require refrigeration or cooking, batteries, flashlights, weather emergency radios, and all of the over the counter medicines or prescriptions you may take and any important documents close at hand.
In my hometown, we narrowly escaped huge amounts of flooding and a tornado. I’m grateful things have been okay here, but my thoughts go out to those who were affected.
Some good advice:
Have some common sense. Don’t go “surfing” in the flooded street*. If you don’t really have to go out while everything is flooded, don’t.
* Actually happened. Not joking.
