The Big One Hurricane Survival List

Kwan L. Lowe "DigitalHermit"
The list author says: "Every couple years another hurricane rolls around. It will knock off a few tiles, maybe loosen a few branches and destroy an awning or too. After a few of these, people get complacent. They forget how bad a hurricane can be. This is a short of equipment to get past those first few days without electricity, water and food. It assumes that you still have the routine household supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, water kettle, utensils, etc..) but may not have power. You may still be able to sleep in your bed, but all the other routines will be disrupted."

"Most insurance companies are usually decent in the aftermath of a storm. Some aren't. It's up to you to document the damage so that there aren't any surprises in a couple months."

Coleman PerfectFlow InstaStart 2-Burner Stove
"Even if you have a grill, a propane stone is still quite useful for boiling water and other cooking. Even a single burner stove is better than trying to boil a kettle over a campfire (maybe not quite as fun, but definitely faster). Make sure you use outdoors only!"

"Duct tape can help with many temporary repairs (and even some permanent ones)."
Gerber 22-41121 Prodigy Survival Knife
Gerber 22-41121 Prodigy Survival Knife
"A good knife is just useful everywhere from cutting rope to trimming branches for firewood. To be realistic, if it came down to having to make a shelter then most people would end up staying at relatives or hopping in the car and heading to a hotel. But when you need a knife it's much safer to use a strong, reliable knife than a cheap one that can break and cause you injury."

"Important is to have bandages and disinfectant and know how to use them. Something to flush wounds is especially helpful as a nail puncture can become quite serious in a matter of hours. You may also want to add Celox or similar wound gel."
Coleman Two-Mantle Adjustable Gas Lantern

"Propane lanterns give a lot more light than battery powered ones, though can be a pain. I prefer them because batteries have a shorter shelf-life.  That said, I have many flashlights."

"Useful to know when the storm has cleared and that bright blue sky is not just the eye of the hurricane. Also serves as entertainment :)"

"During Hurricane Andrew, the street signs blew away. Streets that I'd travelled for years looked completely different. With a GPS you can, if needed, get in your car and get to a hotel room. You'd be surprised how difficult it can be to navigate without the usual landmarks and visual clues that we normally rely upon."
Wenzel Starlight 2-Person Hiker/Biker Tent
Wenzel Starlight 2-Person Hiker/Biker Tent
"Sometimes you will need to camp out in your backyard. Having a tent makes it much more bearable.  Though after a storm the weather is generally good, the bugs and the outdoors (especially for the indoor types) can be trying. Most people will still have their beds, even if no A/C, but if the house is dangerously uninhabitable, then this useful..."

"If you need to make your water potable by boiling or chlorine/iodine tablets, then having flavoring makes it more bearable. Remember, though tap water is normally safe to drink (and as good as bottled water), after a storm the lines can become contaminated so you still need to boil or disinfect."

"I don't really enjoy the taste of these things, but with a cup of coffee, they can get you through a few hours. After a storm many stores may also be without power so might not be able to provide supplies."

"Yes, if your house is uninhabitable, you may need to go to a shelter. Having a backpack with a few personal items makes the experience better (it can probably never be fun). Stock it with a book, some pain medication, a clean change of clothes, copies of insurance documents, personal identifications, etc.."

"A multi-tool, along with a hammer is useful to make temporary repairs. Sure, you may have all the tools around your house, but having everything in one gadget saves lots of space in your emergency kit."

Black & Decker BD530L Premium Grain Cowhide Driver Work Gloves, Large
"Lots of dirty, possibly infectious or otherwise dangerous debris can get thrown around outside your house during the hurricane. Though you should never touch downed power lines, sometimes you'll need to clear boards and bricks. Use gloves to keep your fingers safe."

"Waterproof tarps are especially useful to prevent further damage from a leaking roof. If you can no longer stay in your house, they are useful as a quick flooring or even outdoor shelter."

"Because a hurricane wiping out your house doesn't mean that you become uncivilized... Strangely enough, a hot cup of coffee is one of those things that makes me feel human."
