FEMA advises residents to pay close attention to weather forecasts. Preparedness also includes being ready for power outages, flooding and high winds.

The agency advises people to have enough provisions for 72 hours, including food, water and supplies such as batteries. People also need to be ready to evacuate and bring personal documents.
