Hurricane season is underway and now is  the time to get prepared and not when a storm is named.

Here is a quick look of the top items officials say should be packed in your emergency kit:

  • First aid supplies
  • Cash
  • Flashlight, radio, batteries
  • Important documents
  • Water and dry food
  • Prescription medicines
  • Blankets and clothes
