Steps to Take
Have what you need: Ensure your family has at least 3 days worth of food, water and supplies.
This includes enough prescription medication to get you through this period, in case pharmacies and doctors' offices are closed.
If you have seniors, children, pets or other special circumstances, make sure their individual needs are met.
Download a copy of the City's Disaster Preparedness Guide at houstonoem.org for a checklist of things you should have on hand.
Know your level of risk. Tropical weather systems can bring heavy rain and strong winds. Check to see your area's risk of flooding by visiting the Harris County Flood Education Mapping Tool at harriscountyfemt.org.
Plan to Communicate: Develop a family communication plan, so that you know who to check in with after a storm. Visit ready.gov for information on how to do this.
