Are you prepared for Hurricane Season?

**Contest Closed**
Winner is #41 thatlittlehouse


I was contacted by my friends at Energizer to share some very important news with you about weather safety and preparedness. I know we can all agree that no matter where you live in the world, we are all affected by the weather in some way. It is officially Hurricane season and it is so important to be prepared (just in case). Dwayne and I went through Hurricane Andrew back in 1992 and lost EVERYTHING. The one thing I can say I am so happy about is the fact that we took the time to prepare. Most of the people I knew at that time in Miami laughed it off thinking that the weather stations were exaggerating and trying to scare us. I took the warning to heart. I bought a small radio (with batteries), a flashlight and some candles. Thank goodness I listened to my heart. We were blasted with 100+ mph winds with flooding rain like you have never seen in your lifetime. It was the scariest time of our lives. You did not know if you would make it out alive. I am so thankful we had those few emergency items because living in pitch blackness with no roof over your head and no electricity for 2 weeks is not fun. After going through such devastation we have learned to always be prepared for emergencies. I have even over-purchased items (that we would use anyway) and store them in the event of an emergency. Here is a complete checklist of things you should have to be sure your family is prepared to face Hurricane season and other weather related occurrences.

The Energizer company provided us with an emergency kit that is filled with some very handy and helpful items. The kit includes 1 Weather Ready flashlight with batteries, 1 small battery operated radio with batteries, 1 cellphone charger (charges MP3's and Bluetooth as well), 3 packs of assorted batteries and 1 red cinch bag to keep all your emergency items together. We will choose a specific location in our home that the whole family can access the kit in the event of an emergency. My husband has also included our own personal emergency manual to keep in our bag as well.

How would you like the win one of these emergency kits for your family? Good news, Energizer is providing one extra kit to give away to 1 Momfiles reader!

  7. In my area we lose electric at least one a winter for a week or so. Besides the regular things like extra water and canned foods, we make sure out generator is full of gas and tuned up. It isn't big enough to run everything, but we at least have heat and a light on each floor.

  8. Due to the possibility of a storm induced power outage, I have a number of Alladin Kerosene Lanterns. One lantern to each room. When the power is out my family is not deprived of light.

  156. Having been through a few major hurricanes, I recommend making a plan and assembling a kit before the disaster is imminent. I have a blog about it: stormsafety.blogspot.com. Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Believe me, you will still be busy buying things that won't keep (like gasoline; even if you don't have a generator, who knows when you'll be able to fill your car up again due to damage and power outages at the gas stations).

  161. We lose power during the slightest wind or rainstorm, and are always prepared. This past winter, we were without power for 6 days..using our generator to power up 2 small heaters and the fridge. As a storm approaches, we fill old kitty litter buckets with water and put them in the tub for toilet flushing. We always keep a large supply of candles and matches in a special cupboard, along with bottled water and canned goods. I also keep on hand 9 volt batteries for my clock radio to keep check on the weather and power outage reports. I keep the power company's phone number on my emergency list so that I can immediately notify them via cell phone (before that charge goes out!) All in all, living in a rural area, we pretty much have a good routine for these times of emergency during bad weather.

  166. Living in Louisiana, hurricanes are nothing new to us. Generators are a must. However, they will only keep food frozen for so long. We make sure we have a propane tank to cook all of our frozen meats on the grill....During Hurricane Gustav, we had grilling parties and passed food from neighbor to neighbor.

    Thank you for the entry, (Hope we do not need this kit this year)

  180. Doppler radar cannot verify that a tornado has touched down, only the possibility that a tornado is on the ground.

  181. Familiarize all family members with escape routes and put your disaster plan into practice by rehearsing what you will do if and when an emergency happens.

  191. My family has just the bare essentials packed in case of an emergency. We have flashlights, dehydrated food, emergency blankets, lighters and a place to meet in case we get seperated. This sounds like a great addition to our supplies.
