Hurricane Season is always a bit nerve wracking for me. As a survivor of MANY storms, including Andrew (1992 in Miami), Katrina, and Charlie, I am always a bit nervous when storm season approaches. I am no newbie to Florida, so I know the best thing to do is to be prepared. My hurricane starter kit is stocked up, and ready to go in the event that a severe storm approaches.
