BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — While there is no hurricane with its eye on South Florida, that can change in a matter of days this time of year. As we all watch the massive evacuations and preparations in Texas, we encourage our readers to think about preparations here at home. Water, canned foods, fuel, flashlights, batteries, plywood and sandbags can all be purchased now. There’s no need to wait. And the best part: much of it can be purchased online from Amazon and delivered to your door. This isn’t an ad — we’re not linking to anything — but consider the convenience of having your hurricane supplies delivered in a few boxes, instead of waiting until the last minute to stand in endless lines at Home Depot, Publix or Lowes.
Planning in advance can make your life a lot easier — and calmer — when the inevitable hurricane watch or warning is posted for our area.
