Wow, what a week for the east coast. Does anyone know how to prepare for a hurricane?

Oh yeah, we get them in Portland all the time.

What you want to do is go remove all the glass from your windows (don't want to risk them breaking). Then, make sure nothing is fastened down, after all, in a mighty storm, the tree that stands firm gets blown away, while the soft blades of grass that bend with the wind, survive. You got to make sure everything can freely sway with the wind, just like grass.

Next, your want go to your car and make sure that all it's windows are down (avoid broken glass), can't do much about the windshield, but do what you can. It'll probably be rainning so take an umbrella out with you so you don't get wet.

Whichever Katrina he slept through. I usually wake up for a good 4 or 5 minutes of it before going back to bed.

According to this article, http://miami.about.com..., one can do the following to prepare for a hurricane

1. Select a room to sequester your family in (preferably windowless, and underground).

2. Accumulate a supply of non-perishable food, including a healthy douse of water, that will endure for weeks as the hurricane comes and subsides.

3. Disaster supplies ("batteries, flashlights, rope, tarps, plastic bags, bad-weather clothing and other essentials") need to be collected and used as well during the duration of the storm.

4. Prepare the house--whether with hurricane shutters, plywood to fit windows, and so on, for the hurricane.

5. Develop a good communication plan between family members in case if you are separated from your family.

...7. Ensure shelter for any pets in the household....

Note: these contentions are only a summary of most of the points listed in the article. They are not comprehensive enough to encompass the entirety of the survival tactics for hurricanes.

If you need a healthy douse of water, you can just get out and stand in the rain caused by the hurricane, why accumulate a supply of it and sequester oneself inside a room? :)

As a Florida native who's survived several hurricanes, yes. It's a huge pain in the @ss. You have to think of every little detail that you wouldn't ordinarily take notice of, like small objects in your yard that, under hurricane force winds, are potentially missiles that can kill you.
