Okay Folks..... It's time to prepare!
Tropical Storm Emily is out there and right now, they are not expecting it to hit the east coast. But.... We are still in the cone as of this morning! If you haven't already prepared for Hurricane Season, now's the time. By Monday morning, Emily is predicted to be a Hurricane, and is going to be just off our coast here in North Carolina. If the path changes slightly, it could hit us as a Category I storm. Not too devastating, but we still could lose power, experience high winds, downed trees and debris. Make sure you have your disaster supply kit stocked and ready to go. If you do not have a generator, don't fill the freezer this weekend, or you could lose a lot of food. Stock the pantry with non-perishable food items and lots of water (3 gallons per day, per person - don't forget the pets). Not too worried about Emily? Go ahead and prepare anyway.... There will always be the next one.
