As of right now the trajectory of Hurricane Irma is uncertain. However, given Florida’s history with hurricanes, residents should be prepared for the worst. The hurricane will most likely hit Florida this weekend, but has already gone through several of the northern Caribbean islands.

One report from CNN states that, as of noon on September 7, Irma has killed at least three people, destroyed multiple buildings, and left many without power and means of communication.

To ensure your safety throughout the weekend, here are a few helpful tips:

  1. Hit the grocery stores early–water and other essentials run out!
  2. Identify a safe, windowless room in your house in which to take shelter.
  3. Make sure you have an assortment of batteries, candles, or other sources of light.
  4. Be aware of the most accessible evacuation routes to get to safety.
  5. Create a family emergency communication plan for shelter, evacuation, etc.

Over the next several days, keep watch on your local weather channel for important updates on Hurricane Irma. The National Hurricane Center will provide updated forecasts at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
